Labor Day Show
Cinema Bomar is getting to work early with its Labor Day Show. Weeks before our official day off, the collective will screen a round of vintage filmstrips about the daily grind. Two Factories: Japanese-American is a 1974 documentary strip comparing transistor radio factories in Japan and the U.S. that fueled the eras fear of our industry being crushed by Japans. A Good Days Work: Serving reveals the joys of being a waitress; a Houston company filmed it at Galvestons old Hills Restaurant. Night Peoples Day (1973) is a film for kids about people who work at night in which the filmmakers supply all the sound effects with their mouths. The Dam at Nagarjanusar (1972) is a visually stunning documentary on the hand labor behind a dam in India. Other offerings include Get a Job (1985) and Its a Matter of Pride (1975). Take these jobs and watch them at 8:30 p.m. Domy, 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit www.domystore.com. Free.
