Workers Unite Film Festival: Live Performance & Film Screening
May 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Workers Unite Film Festival presents an evening of theater, film, and activism with a performance of “Every Fold Matters” (2016, 75 minutes) and a screening of “Under Pressure” (2015, 34 min).
Based on interviews with New York City laundry workers, “Every Fold Matters” is a hybrid, experimental performance that combines narrative and documentary elements to spotlight the intimate experience of cleaning other people’s clothes; an often unrecognized, historic form of labor.
In the documentary “Under Pressure,” a successful OB-GYN in Germany discovers that despite having a ‘perfect life’ she is having a hard time balancing the demands of her career and her home life. This leads to some serious stress — under pressure.
This event is free and open to the public. Discussion with filmmakers to follow. Reserve your space today: http://www.workersunitefilmfestival.org
