These Shining Lives
October 18-October 21, 2012
This is a true story of women and work. In the 1920s and '30s, a group of young women at a Chicago-area watch factory found themselves at the center of a landmark case in labor law and occupational safety. Melanie Marnich's compelling historical drama about the "Radium Girls" testifies to their dignity and raises questions about workplace conditions that resonate around the world today. Directed by Patricia Riggin.
