Recent coverage of the Workers Unite Film Festival:

Andrew Tilson, executive director of the Workers Unite Film Festival, said that a major reason advocates fought to keep the Hudson Yards construction project unionized was not just because of wages but because the “non-unionized construction industry has historically ignored safety issues. There’s a total connection between being in a union and living, basically,” he said.

Until recently, there was no film festival in NYC that portrayed workers’ lives and struggles, front and center. And no festival that took a side on behalf of working people in their fight for better wages, respect and dignity.

[...] The stories of workers’ struggles in Bangladesh, South Africa, Iraq, Spain, Palestine and Ecuador will be prominently featured, reflecting a festival  theme this year of “Global Labor Solidarity.” The documentary Schoolidarity addresses the issues around the militant 2012 Chicago teachers strike; Overpass Light Brigade portrays the creative tactics activists in Wisconsin used to defy the big business message machine during  Scott Walker’s union-busting campaign.
