Film Screening: A Strike and an Uprising in Texas

When: Fri., Sept. 7, 7-9 p.m. 2018

Urban-15 will host a film screening of independent filmmaker Anne Lewis’s documentary 'A Strike and an Uprising in Texas.' The film is an experimental documentary based in the telling of two events: the San Antonio pecan shellers’ strike of 1938 and the Jobs with Justice march led by Nacogdoches cafeteria workers, groundskeepers, and housekeepers in 1987. Lewis explores both events in the same film, using the methods of oral history and, as an experiment, relating these stories strongly to contemporary ideas and events.

Price: $10-$15
