How does work define us? Do we work for a living or live for our work? What happens to our identities when we can't work anymore? This year, the UVM film series explores the idea of labor through office comedies (Office Space), quirky documentaries (Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control), and consciousness-raising political films (Salt of the Earth and The Front). From union laborers to white collar workers and from wage slaves to independent operators, explore the cinematic world of work with Vermont film lovers and UVM professor David Jenemann. See you at the salt mines!

Price: $10 full / $4 faculty, staff & students
