Way Down In the Hole (36.50) (2010)
By Alex Johnston
Film producer Alex Johnson will introduce the film.
This film provides a visceral exploration of the Great Colorado Coalfield War and the infamous Ludlow Massacre of 1914, juxtaposed with a series of emotional present day interviews with coal miners, who connect this long ago struggle to their own experiences underground.

Weabak: Sleep Over (73 min.) (2009) - Korea
By Kim Mi-re
Five hundred Korean women supermarket cashiers struggle for a union and against a mass layoff of part-time workers and are forced to occupy their supermarket “Home Ever” in Seoul for 510 days. This powerful film shows that women workers who normally would not consider this radical action join together and are transformed by their organizing struggle. They face the wrath of thugs and union busters but hold their own in their effort to win a union. It also shows the issues of women in Korean society where these women overcome these social constraints. kimmi.re [at] gmail.com
