Love's Labor Not Lost

. May 16, 2012.

The struggle for labor rights has shaped politics and society for most of the last century and early into this one, especially here in Michigan. But in the early 1900's the rise and fall of Butte, Montana was directly correlated to the assassination of union organizer Frank Little. Former Ann Arbor resident, Travis Wilkerson takes a profound glimpse of life in and around this mysterious murder and the aftermath for this beleaguered town in his 2002 documentary, An Injury to One. Corporate exploitation, environmentalism and detective novel intrigue are woven seamlessly with stark "Big Sky" landscapes and a traditional mining song soundtrack performed by contemporary artists. An Injury to One will be screened on Monday, January 23 as a part of Café Ambrosia's monthly free Docu Fest series. 7pm. Free. 326 Maynard St. 734-929-9979.
