At War

Saturday, October 26, 2019, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(En guerre, Stéphane Brizé, France 2018, 113 min., DCP, French w/subtitles)

Labor Film Series. Unlike labor films that depict class struggles on the shop floor or the picket line, At War shows the struggle waged at the bargaining table. At issue is management’s decision to close an auto parts plant despite wage concessions made by the workers to keep it open. “I have lived this nightmare of greed and race-to-the-bottom economic destruction of communities in the auto industry. I give At War two thumbs up” (Dan Maloney, Rochester UAW President). A stunning performance by Vincent Lindon (The Measure of a Man) anchors the film.
