Saturday, July 21, 2012 at 4:00pm
Brothers On The Line is a documentary feature exploring the legacy of the Reuther brothers – Walter, Roy, and Victor – pioneering labor organizers and social justice statesman, and their remarkable leadership of the United Auto Workers union. Directed by Victor’s grandson Sasha Reuther and narrated by Martin Sheen, the film follows the brothers from their rise as shop-floor organizers in 1930s Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, civil rights, and international labor solidarity. It combines rare UAW archive footage, personal photos, oral histories, and original HD interviews with a broad spectrum of labor, civil rights and political personalities. A timely tale of one family’s quest to compel American democracy to live up to its promise of equality, Brothers On The Line is a dramatic blueprint of successful social action.
Tickets start at $10.
