Eighth Annual International Festival of Anthropology Film: Work and Solidarity.

April 12, 10am to 5pm.

AnSo Building, rm 207. 6303 NW Marine Drive

This year's festival features films that explore notions of work and social solidarity. All aspects of work – paid/unpaid; creative, productive, intangible – are considered in the films we are screening. These films, each in their own manner, find ways that illuminate solidarity and dignity in and through work. A light lunch and refreshments will be served. Admission by donation.
