Julia Reichert: 50 Years in Film: Seeing Red: Stories of American Communists

March 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:40 pm

$7 – $65

Nominated for Best Documentary Feature, Seeing Red recounts the experiences of ordinary Americans who joined the Communist Party, and the high price many of them paid during the Red Scare in the 1950s. Compiled from more than 400 interviews with former and current Party members, the film delivers an engaging, funny, and human portrait of 50 years of activism. Iconic folk singer Pete Seeger and a dozen other members share personal stories that take on a special resonance today.

Watch an interview with the filmmakers.
