   LaborFilms is an unmoderated, uncensored e-mail discussion group for the
   discussion of labor films and the production of a Network Guide to Labor
   Films.  The Guide will collect information presented to the LaborFilms
   discussion group, and be available as a file for network access.  This
   information will be useful to those organizing a showing of a labor film
   for a local union, labor film club or other setting.
   The subject matter will cover films from different countries, and films
   of both current and historical interest.  Topics will include films on
   union organizing drives, union tactics and strategy, strike actions,
   boycott campaigns, and occupational and health concerns to ensure a safe
   workplace along with important episodes in labor history.
   Special attention will be paid to struggles by women and people of
   color for equal, respectful and dignified treatment,
   Material useful to publicize a film showing will be sought, along with
   historical background material suitable for further study.  Articles and
   reviews from union journals are welcome, as are audience response to
   various films, discussion on how to select a good film for a given audience,
   programs of labor film festivals and future plans for new labor films.
