Here's a brief description of the film:
Julius Margolin, at 89, is a living legend in the New York City labor movement. He’s been active since the 1930s in the CIO, National Maritime Union and Local 52 of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees, which he has represented in the Central Labor Council for 32 years. A tireless fighter for justice, equality, and against war, Julius embarked on a new career in 1999, making music and CDs with George Mann while still hitting picket lines
and organizing workers in New York City and around the United States.
"A Union Man" is the story of his life through his eyes as well as those he’s met Wand worked with. A documentary film featuring guest appearances by Utah Phillips, Faith Petric and former NMU Vice President Joe Stack, as well
as concert performances, this is an affectionate portrait of a rank-and-file activist still in the struggle for justice and workers’ rights.
Format is film first (it's 67 minutes), brief Q&A and then concert. Admission to all events is by donation with all welcome regardless of donation. For all ages-- please help us spread the word!
Solidarity-- George and Julius
