Christ in Concrete Film Showing


The IWW presents a showing of 'Christ in Concrete' (aka 'Give Us This Day') by blacklisted director Edward Dmytryk (one of the Hollywood Ten). Shot in England, but set in NYC's 'Little Italy', the film follows Geremio (played by blacklisted actor Sam Wanamaker), a young Italian immigrant working as a bricklayer. He struggles to provide a life for himself and his new wife as the Depression cripples the economy and drives him to extremes.

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) seek to unite all workers internationally into one union that fights for working people and seeks to create a new classless society.
