As part of the continuing celebration of the 45th anniversary
of Kartemquin Films, South Side Projections, the Pullman
State Historic Site, and the Bronzeville Historical Society
are proud to present a screening of the documentary
THE LAST PULLMAN CAR (1984, Gordon Quinn &
Jerry Blumenthal, 16mm) at the historic Clock Tower
Building, part of the original Pullman factory complex.
Gordon Quinn and Jerry Blumenthal, founders of
Kartemquin, will be present for discussion.
In 1981, the United Steelworkers Local 1834 tried
in vain to keep the Pullman-Standard Company
from shutting down its operations in Pullman,
putting several hundred people out of work.
Kartemquin Films’s compelling documentary
THE LAST PULLMAN CAR concentrates on the
workers' plight as their elected officials, the company,
and finally the national union seem deaf to their concerns.
Set against the history of the struggle between labor and
corporations, but as relevant today as it was thirty years
ago, THE LAST PULLMAN CAR tells yet another story of
American industry abandoning our workers and communities.
