$6.00 – $15.00

The thick-layered chronicle doesn't sweep across time so much as it escorts the audience through indelible composite events that bristle with personal, social, and political characteristics….Since 1900 has come to stand as an organic cinematic journey through chapters of a rich apocryphal history that evinces an ongoing struggle between the world's rich elite and everyone else.”—Cole Smithey

Hoovervilles, the Bonus March, and the rich in tuxedos with the poor at their feet form the background of the series and suggest our own era where Trumpvilles flourish and will soon expand when unemployment benefits are exhausted.

Working Class Cinema in the Age of Digital Capitalism

Sun, March 21 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$7.00 – $11.00
