FILM: “BROTHERS ON THE LINE” (Sasha Reuther, 2012)
BROTHERS ON THE LINE is an acclaimed documentary feature exploring the legacy of the Reuther brothers – Walter, Roy, and Victor – pioneering labor organizers and social justice statesman, and their remarkable leadership of the United Auto Workers union. Directed by Victor’s grandson Sasha Reuther and narrated by Martin Sheen, the film follows the brothers from their rise as shop-floor organizers in 1930s Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, civil rights, and international labor solidarity. 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.
