DIRECTOR'S PERSONAL STATEMENT:
"My work is motivated by a desire to promote socially conscious thinking. I grew up in a small rural town in central Pennsylvania, surrounded by people who saw little hope for a better life as factories closed down and wages stagnated. Their hopelessness often led to drug and alcohol addictions, domestic abuse, violence, suicide, and other self-destructive behaviors that create wider social problems.
These experiences and memories have provided a guiding principle in my work as a filmmaker. Although I am motivated by a sense of cause, at the same time I am able to look at issues without prejudice and present the facts in an unbiased manner. I believe these are some of the qualities that make my team and I the right candidates to tell the important story of the American labor movement." – Caeser Pink
