BROTHERS ON THE LINE (80MIN, USA)
DIRECTOR: SASHA REUTHER
CHICAGO PREMIEREBrothers On The Line is a provocative documentary feature exploring the legacy of the Reuther brothers, labor and civil rights champions, whose leadership of the United Auto Workers (UAW) union transformed the social, economic, and political landscape of a nation. Comprised of never-before-seen footage from the UAW internal archive, stirring first-hand accounts and narration by Martin Sheen, this film takes an in-depth look at a controversial history. It not only weaves a striking personal narrative of one family's commitment, but provides timely commentary on issues that resonate far beyond their era, from the virtual collapse of the 'Big 3' automakers to current debates over workers rights, trade agreements, national health-care, and the Occupy movement. A tour-de-force sure to engage and inspire.
