On Tuesday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom, The Center for Global Workers' Rights and The Sustainability Institute are hosting a free screening of Cart (2014, South Korea, 110 min). The film will be introduced by the School of Labor and Employment Relations's Jinyoung Park. The film's trailer and the registration link to attend the film are available at: https://intersections.psu.edu/cart/.
Based on the true story of a 512-day protest in 2007 by temporary workers at the Homever superstore chain in South Korea, the award-winning film follows the struggles of women at an unnamed store who organize after they are summarily dismissed and replaced by contractors to avoid having to offer the temporary workers better pay and benefits.
The film has been selected in honor of the College of Liberal Arts theme of Moments of Change: A Century of Women’s Activism. It is the latest installment of an ongoing film series called Intersections: Landscapes of Labor, which highlights overlaps between struggles for labor rights, environmental sustainability, and other social justice issues.
If you are interested in offering extra credit to any of your students who attend, please contact Manuel Rosaldo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can follow up after the event with a list of students who attended.
