Event Description

“Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?”  This question is a chilling reminder of a dark time in our nation’s history as the McCarthy Committee on un-American Activities turned up the red-baiting heat on members of the Motion Picture community.  In 1947, ten artists and studio executives were charged with contempt of Congress and blacklisted.  Seven years later, several of the “Hollywood Ten” came together in a clandestine effort to make a film deserving of their reputation.  Using the true story of the strike of the Empire Zinc Mine in Southwest New Mexico, The Salt of the Earth chronicles the efforts of Mexican-American miners to gain treatment equal to their Anglo counterparts.  A feminist angle involves the attempt of the miners’ wives to also be involved against their husbands’ wishes.  The Salt of the Earth is the only film ever blacklisted by the US Government and was added to the National Film Registry in 1992.  Come be our guest for free popcorn, hot chocolate and lively discussion.
