   WORKERS UNITE! FILM FESTIVAL 3

 
                     NYC Celebrates Global Labor Solidarity
  End Income Inequality Now! Let Workers Organize into Unions!

                       
                  MAY 9TH TO MAY 19TH, 2014

 

 

Our Festival is scheduled between the 100th anniversary of the success of the "Bread and Roses" strike in Lawrence, MA. the 101st anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, a rallying point for organizing American workers and May Day, the international workers day of unity and celebration. This year we honor the Joseph Murphy Institute for Workers Education and Labor Studies, based at The City University of NY. We also honor, on opening night, The MFA Program in Social Documentary Film at The School Of Visual Arts, in NYC (SocDoc@SVA), for their training of the next generation of socially conscious filmmakers.

We seek to join forces with our working brothers and sisters from around the world, both organized in existing unions and currently fighting to organize for their workplace rights, to broadcast our stories of struggle and victory to counter the often negative image of unions and workers portrayed by the mainstream media. We are the 99%!  Our stories and struggles, our history and dreams for the future - we hope to screen all of these for an ever growing audience. We celebrate a different part of our fight for worker/labor power each evening. Please join us at the festival.

"I chose your festival because I went to New York two years ago for a "Work and Travel" program. I was travelling around the city.It was amazing. Museums, clubs, architecture, parks etc. However, when I started to work. I realised that New York is such a big city and there is a system underneath it. This system cannot work without workers. They are biggest wheel of a giant machine. Actually, workers are the whole system. They should unite and show the power of their labor. I wanted the show this to the people. That's why I chose this festival for my project."
