Anne Lewis

Appalshop films

Fast Food Women, by Anne Lewis, came out in 1991 but seems to anticipate Barbara Ehrenreich's 2001 book, Nickel and Dimed. In this film, women working in pizza, burger, and fried chicken places in eastern Kentucky talk frankly, as if to a friend, about their jobs and lives. Their conversations are particularly relevant now that fast food has been getting the spotlight.
