New Mexico Labor Film Festival
This year's second annual New Mexico Labor Film Festival--held in conjunction with the Global Labor Film Festival--will feature a trio of films in honor of International Workers' Day. First up is Dream On
, in which political comedian John Fugelsang follows in the footsteps of Alex de Tocqueville, whose study of our young country in 1831 came to define the idea of the "American Dream." Fugelsang talks to everyone from fast food workers to entrepreneurs to see if de Tocqueville's observations are still valid. Next is the NEA-backed documentary Schoolidarity
, which examines the history of issues surrounding the privatization of public schools in the US. Closing out the night is the 2014 comedy-drama Pride
, which takes a fictionalized look at a famous 1984 mine workers strike supported--somewhat surprisingly--by UK gay activists.
