See award-winning documentary films that showcase the history and culture of labor movements in the US and abroad.

Reel Work presents a film screening with speaker and filmmaker Eddie Wong. Reel Works creates cultural events, bringing together award-winning documentary film producers, workers, activists, students, and the public to raise awareness for the central role work plays in our lives. We highlight how workers and community members band together in united effort for mutual benefit to achieve justice and dignity in the streets, fields, and workshops.

This community event is related to the exhibition We Who Work; Prints and Tapestries by Hung Liu. Find out more about the exhibition and see the full schedule of related events here.
