Free Lefty Films

Free open source movies, these two have a 'labour' theme.

"The Prologue" from The Passaic Textile Strike - Albert Wagenknecht and others
This film was part of an effort by striking immigrant wool mill workers. Two of the seven reels from their efforts have been lost, however, "The Prologue", a dramatization about the lot of an immigrant family working in the mills, is complete. Production costs for the film were payed primarily by the American Communist Party. From the AFI/Thomas Brandon Collection at the Library of Congress, copied at 19fps from a 35mm print.

Lots more there too.
