RSVPThe 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. 

NOTE: As of the fall 2020 semester, the pandemic is preventing group screenings, indeed all campus events. In the meantime, we launch the following virtual opportunity:

The Higgins Labor Film Club:
Fall 2020: Gender@Work on the American Screen

Miss going to the movies? So do we, but we’ve come up with the next best thing. The Higgins Labor Program has selected four great films showcasing the work and activism of four female protagonists fighting for social justice from different eras of American history.

How does it work?

  • Watch the film on your own time. If you’re a Notre Dame community member, you can access the film via a special Hesburgh Library link; if you’re not, you’ll have to access the film on your own.

  • RSVP for the Higgins Labor Film Club Zoom discussion. You’ll then receive a calendar invite with the Zoom info.

  • Join us on a Sunday afternoon for casual conversation about the movie with an expert from the Notre Dame faculty.

Our next feature:

Bread and Roses (2000, directed by Ken Loach, starring Pilar Padilla)
Discussion featuring Jaime Pensado, Associate Professor of History
Sun., Nov. 8, 4 pm.
RSVP here for the discussion; Notre Dame community members can screen the film here (others must access the film on their own but are welcome to join the conversation).
