Cinema Politica’s next screening will take a critical look at the treatment of the working class.
Class Dismissed: How TV Frames The Working Class navigates the steady stream of narrow working class representations from American television’s beginnings to today’s sitcoms, reality shows, police dramas, and daytime talk shows.
John Henry Harter, a labour studies instructor at Simon Fraser University, will be the guest speaker at the event. He will be joined by Teri Mitchell, from Street Ministries Community Supper, which serves hot meals, provides clothing and other comforts to those in need in Maple Ridge.
• Class Dismissed screens Thursday, Dec. 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. at municipal hall in Maple Ridge, 11995 Haney Place. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. There will be coffee, popcorn and door prizes. Join the conversation online at cinemapolitica.org/ridgemeadows.
