- Running Time: 60:00
- Directed by: Anne Lewis
In this hour-long documentary, director Anne Lewis chronicles nearly a decade of change in Morristown, Tennessee, through interviews with displaced or low-wage Southern workers, Mexican immigrants, and workers and families impacted by globalization.
The film shows how working-class people in Mexico and eastern Tennessee are caught in the throes of massive economic change, challenging their assumptions about work, family, nation and community.
“Morristown” is in Spanish and English with subtitles.
“..brings the complex issue of globalization down to its human level — where workers on both sides of the border, men and women, struggle to survive. In the film, the workers speak from the heart, whether in Spanish or English, and while there is poignancy in their stories, there is also inspiration as they challenge corporate power in cross-cultural solidarity.” – Howard Zinn author of A People’s History of the United States
