78] – The Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemoration Committee is hosting its latest FILM & SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS DVD SERIES. The theme is MAN & WOMAN AGAINST THE MACHINE. The third film in the series is THE WOBBLIES [
The award-winning film by Deborah Shaffer and Stewart Bird looks at the Industrial Workers of the World from its founding until its heyday during World War I. Its members, nicknamed the Wobblies, traveled from coast to coast with "Solidarity" as their slogan and the goal of organizing unskilled workers into "One Big
Union." Using interviews with surviving Wobblies, photos, songs, cartoons, and some rare and startling film footage of the period, directors Bird and Shaffer saved that vision from oblivion.
Doors open at 7 PM, and the DVD starts at 7:30 PM. There is no charge, and refreshments will be available. A discussion will follow.
