September 2019 

Labor Day—Honoring Working People
& Hispanic History and Heritage

 

Part I: Labor Day—Honoring Working People

 

Friday, September 6   Salt of the Earth   1954 / 94 min. / NR

HISTORICAL NOTE: During World War II, unions generally did not strike because of the urgency of the war effort. Afterward, that changed because of pent-up frustrations with inadequate pay and poor working conditions. Then in 1947 Congress passed the Taft Hartley Act, which criminalized certain union tactics, including wildcat strikes, solidarity strikes and mass picketing. At the same time, the House Unamerican Activities Committee subpoenaed hundreds of people suspected of being Communists, and many lost their jobs. Some went to prison. In the film industry, some of these people were known as the Hollywood Ten. Salt of the Earth is known for defiance, having been written, produced, directed and shot by blacklisted Hollywood artists. It was financed by the International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers.

Based on a true story, the script depicts a Mexican miners’ strike in New Mexico. The miners strike and picket to be paid as much as Anglo miners and for commensurate working conditions. Then they’re served with a Taft Hartley injunction, and face being jailed if they continue. Against the miners’ wishes, wives insist on taking over the picketing because they are not subject to the injunction. An early feminist bent is one of the film’s  claims to fame. Most of its actors are townspeople, which aligns the production with Italian Neo-realist films of he 1940s.

 

Part II: Hispanic History and Heritage

 

Friday, September 13   The Official Story   1985 / 112 min. / NR

In 1983, during the final months of an Argentinian military dictatorship, a high school teacher (Norma Aleandro) sees families of “disappeared” leftists in the street daily demanding to know the whereabouts of their loved ones (or their remains). She sets out to find out who the mother of her adopted daughter is, but her nervous, conscientious search threatens to upend the comfortable life she enjoys with her authoritarian husband. English subtitles.

 

Friday, September 20   City of God    2002 / 130 min. / R

This crime drama is set in Rio de Janeiro slums created by the Brazilian government to isolate poor people from prosperous parts of the city. Two young men take different paths. One friend becomes a drug kingpin. The other learns photography to record the life of his community, making the film an extraordinarily vibrant visual experience. Nominated for Academy Awards for directing, adapted screenplay, cinematography and film editing. English subtitles

 

Friday, September 27   Which Way Home   2009 / 90 min. / NR

Documentarian Rebecca Cammisa follows a group of unaccompanied Central American children trying to reach the US by riding on the tops of trains traveling through Mexico. In addition to physical danger, they  face hunger, being exploited, being separated from family and friends, and the possibility of being arrested and abused by ICE. The film, which won an Emmy for Outstanding Informational Programming, is hard-hitting. English subtitles.

 

October 2019
California Mysterioso

Friday, October 4   The Big Sleep    1946 / 114 min. / NR

A conspicuously wealthy L.A. civic leader hires private detective Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) to look into the activities of his wild daughter, Carmen, who routinely stumbles into crooks and dead bodies. Meanwhile, Marlowe falls for the kid’s older sister, Vivian (Lauren Bacall). Thanks to script rewrites that catered to 40s fascination with Bogie and Bacall, this gem of the film noir genre is stylish enough to drive away viewers’ uncertainties about what’s going on in the film. Based on a Raymond Chandler novel. 

 

Friday, October 11   L.A. Confidential    1997 / 138 min. / R

In this neo-noir film, each of three Los Angeles police officers has his thing—one (Guy Pearce) is looking for his father’s killer, another (Kevin Spacey) pedals lurid celebrity stories to a tabloid magnate (Danny DeVito) and a third (Russell Crowe) is determined to solve a restaurant takedown in which his ex-partner died. They’re all part of a web that is the corrupt LAPD. Kim Basinger won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Based on a James Ellroy novel.

 

Friday, October 18   Mulholland Drive    2001 / 147 min. / R

A dark-haired woman (Laura Elena Harring) awakens with amnesia after a Mulholland Drive car crash that has saved her from being murdered. She finds an open apartment whose occupant, aspiring actress Betty Elms (Naomi Watts), soon returns. Betty tries to help the woman, who adopts the name Rita from a Rita Hayworth poster.  The slip-sliding setup spins into a surreal story, suspension of disbelief required. Director David Lynch earned high praise from critics.

 

Friday, October 25   Invasion of the Body Snatchers  1956 / 80 min. / NR

Something isn’t right in a small California town. The town doctor (Kevin McCarthy) becomes alarmed when several people report that a family member is not acting like themselves. The doctor investigates. He becomes convinced that an alien force is replacing townspeople with emotionless doppelgängers. Considered a masterpiece among horror films, Invasion has been seen by some as a metaphor for the effects of McCarthyism on Americans.
