James Klein, Miles Mogulescu, Julia Reichert

Union Maids (1976, by filmmakers James Klein, Miles Mogulescu, and Julia Reichert) is an oral history of the labor movement in 1930s Chicago, beautifully told by three women labor organizers. Archival visuals complement the black-and-white interview footage. We get a sense for the dynamism and drive of the worker/activists of the day.
