The Labor Question goes to the movies in our ongoing partnership with the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
The Higgins Labor Program's FILM CLASSics series features important films—at least one per semester--that probe questions of work, class, economics, identity, politics, daily life, and solidarity. Whether old or new, celebrated or obscure, famous or forgotten, these titles merit presentations in a social setting and on a big screen.


Join us for Notre Dame's Annual May Day Movie!

Support the Girls (USA, 2018, directed by Andrew Bujalski)

Sunday | April 28 | 3:00 PM | Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Support the Girls features Regina Hall as the protective manager of a group of employees at a sports bar -- and raises timely questions about sexual objectification, working for others, and female solidarity.


This is a free but ticketed event, and snacks and soft drinks are on the house, courtesy of the Higgins Labor Program and its cosponsors, the Gender Studies Program and the American Studies Department. Walk-ups are welcome, but to secure a ticket for you and yours, get yourselves on the coveted Higgins Guest List. RSVP Here

Come for the film and the free popcorn; stay for the great panel discussion afterwards, featuring:
