Learning Beyond the Classics: Hollywood Goes to Work

The Higgins Labor Program partners with the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center to screen six American movies focusing on work, the politics of work, and the work of social justice. Mark your calendar now for Sundays at 3 p.m., culminating in our annual May Day Movie on May 3. Look for details soon about how to purchase tickets and/or participate in the non-credit course.

Blue Collar (1978)

Native Michigander Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, First Reformed) returns to his roots with this crime thriller set in Detroit. Autoworkers Jerry, Zeke, and Smokey (Harvey Keitel, Yaphet Kotto, and Richard Pryor, respectively) are dissatisfied — and reasonably so.
Each in debt and jerked around by both management and union leaders, the three hatch a scheme to steal money from their union. While a light haul, the heist yields the union’s crooked books, a cudgel that comes with either the power to extort or to bust up the corruption.
