Films in February: At Home in Utopia

Friday, February 22


Program:
At Home in Utopia

They wanted to change the American dream… In the mid-1920s, thousands of Jewish immigrant garment workers managed to catapult themselves out of urban slums and ghettos by pooling their resources and building four cooperatively owned and run apartment complexes in the Bronx.

At Home in Utopia focuses on the United Workers Cooperative Colony--the Coops – also known to local policemen as Little Moscow because this community of 2,000 people was dominated by Communists. An epic tale of the struggle for equity and justice across two generations, the film tracks the rise and fall of one community from the 1920s into the 1950s, paying close attention to the passions that bound them together and those that tore them apart.
