3:30-5pm 'The Wobblies' film

This documentary investigates a nation torn by naked corporate greed and the red-hot rift between the industrial masters and the rabble-rousing workers in the field and factory. Replete with archival footage, the film pays tribute to American workers who took the ideals of equality and free speech seriously enough to die for them. The Wobblies were one of the few unions to be racially and sexually integrated and often met with imprisonment, violence, and the privations of long strikes. Selected for New York and Berlin Film Festivals.
