In the mid-1920s, thousands of Jewish immigrant garment workers catapulted themselves out of urban slums and ghettos by pooling their resources and building four cooperatively owned and run apartment complexes in the Bronx.  Award-winning filmmaker Michal Goldman focuses on the most grassroots and member-driven of the Jewish labor cooperatives, the United Workers Cooperative Colony. The film (a WJFF 08 favorite) is an epic tale of the struggle for equity and justice across two generations, tracking the rise and fall of one community from the 1920s to the 1950s.
USA, 2008, video, documentary, 57 minutes. Director: Michal Goldman

Presented in conjunction with the DC Labor Film Festival.
