Sorry We Missed You: Film Screening + Post-film Discussion

Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You is an intimate and affecting portrait of the millions of workers toiling away at the edge of a changing economy that continually treats humans as mere cogs in an increasingly automated and faster moving system that values efficiency above all else. Along the way, people’s lives, health, families, and communities are increasingly treated as externalities to be minimized on a company’s balance sheet. Without being didactic, Loach shows the cost of this system and how unsustainable it already is. Following the film, the Center for Global Workers’ Rights will lead a discussion with leaders around the nation who are trying to organize workers fighting back against this dehumanizing system and trying to empower workers to protect their rights and communities.
