DC Labor Filmfest: The Organizer

50th Anniversary!

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, this film gives Marcello Mastroianni one of his best roles, as a late-19th-century labor leader orchestrating a strike at a Turin textile plant. With an exquisite handling of period, the film had a sizable impact when it came out in 1963, though it's been curiously neglected ever since. "Arguably one of the great Italian films of the 1960s, it cries out for rediscovery." –Jonathan Rosenbaum.

DIR/SCR Mario Monicelli; SCR Agenore Incrocci, Furio Scarpelli; PROD Franco Cristaldi. Italy/France/Yugoslavia, 1963, b&w, 130 min, 35mm. In Italian with English subtitles. NOT RATED

    This was a fabulous movie with a moving story line, wonderful acting, yet humorous and educational. I'm sorry I missed the group due to a noon meeting which ran late.

    Darn, I really wanted to see this movie, but I have a salsa class at 2 p.m. which I've already paid for.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
