Mark Street

WORK SONGS still

USA, 2019, 68 min, DCP

“What’s the weirdest thing that ever happened at your job?”  Mark Street interviews cab drivers, longshorewomen, a farmer, a barista and others from California to New York.  A kaleidoscopic portrait of the United States at work emerges with threats from automation, the gig economy and the decline of unions. Inspired by the writing of the great Studs Terkel.
