Willard Straight Theatre
w/speakers from the Eastern Farm Workers Association
Written, produced and directed by three men blacklisted in Hollywood who took on the controversial topic of labor relations in a film based on an actual New Mexico mineworkers strike. When White workers are given higher wages and safer conditions, the Chicano workers go on strike to receive the same treatment. The neorealist film follows not just their strike but how their wives become involved as well, making it one of the first films to advance a feminist social and political point of view. Shown in a 35mm film print from the UCLA Film & Television Archive. More at tcm.com/this-month/article/18772|0/Salt-of-the-Earth.html
