Labor Fest 2015! This event is part of the annual month-long celebration of working people and their history in the SF Bay Area. See http://www.laborfest.net. In the early 1900's, the legendary Joe Hill emigrated from Sweden with his brother to the United States. Joe got a few jobs but was struck by all the injustice and tragedy going on. The American Federation of Labor only organized skilled workers, not unskilled assembly line workers. Joe joined and became active in the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW). In some places unconstitutional laws were passed to forbid freedom of speech and demonstrations. Joe had a significant impact and became popular as an IWW singer but made powerful enemies, too. This film carries you through his powerful and ultimately tragic story.
