The DC LaborFest rolls on this weekend with a free screening of the award-winning film "Sista in the Brotherhood" today, labor song vespers tonight and our third annual Labor Night at DC United tomorrow. Plus you can catch "Sista" director Dawn Jones Redstone and the Laborers' Patti Devlin on WPFW 89.3 FM this morning at 9a as LaborFest Director Chris Garlock hosts "Arise!" (catch it online too)
REMINDER: Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see writer/director/actor John Sayles and "Matewan" next Tuesday, May 16! The AFI has a gorgeous film print of this labor classic, celebrating its 30th anniversary, and Sayles will receive the LaborFest’s Labor Arts Award and will do a Q&A after the film.
