Elise and Chris discuss films from the DC Labor Filmfest Spring Screening Series with Andrea Arenas, Communications & Policy Coordinator for the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, and co-host of the El Desvio podcast (She’ll be doing the Q&A for IDENTIFYING FEATURES [SIN SEÑAS PARTICULARES] on Wednesday, March 31). We’re also joined by labor journalist Sarah Jaffe, author of Work Won't Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted and Alone. Sarah also cohosts the terrific Belabored podcast (she’s doing the Q&A for LAPSIS Wed, April 7; 7:00 p.m. ET).
We talk about our first movies, about the things we’re missing from being stuck watching movies at home during the pandemic, and we even have some tips on how to watch scary movies. Grab your popcorn, sit back and relax, and enjoy the show!
Includes clips from Chaplin’s Modern Times, King Kong (1933), and trailers for Identifying Features and Lapsis. The DC Labor Filmfest Spring Screening Series is co-presented by the AFI Silver Theatre and the DC Labor FilmFest.
Produced by Chris Garlock. Video edited by Evan Papp of Empathy Media Lab.
