American Documentary Film Festival screen gems: Locked Out

American Documentary Film Festival screen gems:

Locked Out

Before the Occupy Wall Street movement, a brave group of unionized (ILWU) miners in the desert town of Boron, California, put their lives on the line by refusing to accept wage and benefit cuts by their greedy employer Rio Tinto, a multinational mining company. Rio Tinto retaliated by locking these miners out of their jobs and replacing them with workers from around the U.S. The David and Goliath struggle which ensued is an example of how workers need to organize and fight corporate greed.

Don’t miss Locked Out– one of the many thought-provoking screen gems you’ll see at this year’s inaugural American Documentary Film Festival. For more information, and a complete schedule listing, visit http://americandocumentaryfilmfestival.com/
