|Summary:||American dream: After President Ronald Regan broke the air traffic controllers' strike in 1981, American corporations declared open season on organized labor. This Academy Award winner for best documentary in 1991 presents the true-life story of the 1985-1986 workers' strike against Geo. A. Hormel & Company in Austin, Minnesota. When Geo. A. Hormel & Company made $2 million in profits, then cut its workers' salaries by $2.00 an hour each, the workers had only one option: Go out on strike. This film is documents the workers efforts to retain these middle-class, blue-collar jobs from beginning to end.
Children of the night: "More than a million Jewish children died in the Holocaust. This brief film is the result of a world-wide search for archival material showing some of these children. The footage we discovered - in the U.S.A., Israel, Britain, France and Germany - was often in extremely poor condition and always silent. It reveals the barest trace of what was lost"--Title screen.
