THE PAPERMAKER by Monica Wood
April 16th, 2019
Director: Mark O’Donnell
Based on a true story. In 1987, 1250 union workers of the International Paper Company plant in Jay, Maine, walked out on strike. Dragging on for a year and a half, the conflict between the small-town papermakers and the multibillion-dollar corporation brought the community closer together; in other ways, it ripped the town apart. Monica Wood’s PAPERMAKER, tells the moving and thoughtful story of two families in the midst of this bitter dispute.
