Program 3: Austerity Sucks! 'SINK' (U.K.)

  • Cinema Village 22 East 12th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Mark of A Free Society - Workers’ rights to organize in unions are a mark of a free society! To better understand, this animation returns to the British industrial revolution and the birth of the world’s first unions. Extreme conditions across rail and maritime industries drove workers to unite, culminating in today’s largest UK transport union, the RMT. (2018, 2 min, U.K.)

SINK - A feature film, shot mainly in South East London, about a man on zero hours (where the employer dictates what hours are to be worked), who is driven to do something completely out of character (and far outside his normal moral compass) because of the pressures that inevitably follow from that kind of working life. Although it's not all doom and gloom - there is a lot of warmth and humor to it too.  It’s about people finding their way through.  It’s about Micky Mason; a man out there, right now, doing his best. (2018, 86 min, U.K.)
