Screening of “Brothers on the Line” presented by Bread & Roses Labor Series
Victor’s grandson Sasha Reuther and narrated by Martin Sheen, Brothers On The Line
follows the brothers from their rise as shop-floor organizers in 1930s
Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, civil rights, and
international labor solidarity. It combines rare UAW archive footage,
personal photos, oral histories, and original HD interviews with a broad
spectrum of labor, civil rights and political personalities. A timely
tale of one family's quest to compel American democracy to live up to
its promise of equality, Brothers On The Line is a dramatic blueprint of
successful social action.
Director, Sasha Reuher will join us (via Skype) for Q&A after the screening.
