Directed by Mark Street

Work Songs still

USA, 2019, 68 min, DCP

Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.” – Studs Terkel


Dan is joined by documentary filmmaker Mark Street, and Maureen Gutierrez, an ILWU worker who appears on Mark's new project Work songs.
