This documentary film which is based on my early collaboration with Workers Art Coalition. I followed the group since late 2013, filming, documenting and interviewing them about what they do and why they do it. In this documentary, I have captured how different members of the group define the collective, it’s future and their relation to it. Most of the interviewees who are NYC electrical union workers lay out how their trade work, activism, and art are combined in the projects and spaces that the collective creates. The documentary has been screened at Labor United film festival, Queens Museum and lately at Teatre Lido by New Politics of Labor.
