It combines rare UAW archive footage, personal photos, oral histories, and original HD interviews with a broad spectrum of labor, civil rights and political personalities. A timely tale of one family's quest to compel American democracy to live up to its promise of equality, Brothers On The Line is a dramatic blueprint of successful social action."  Director, Sasha Reuher will take part in a Q&A via Skype after the screening!  Bread & Roses is a monthly Busboys and Poets labor series that features a variety of events focused on workers and organized labor.
