The forgotten history of ordinary Americans who joined the Communist Party during the worst Depression years of the 1930s – and the high price many paid during the Red Scare of the 1950s and their shock and disillusionment at Khrushchev’s post-Stalin revelations. Starting with more than 400 interviews with both diehard and ex-party members, Klein and Reichert (co-director of the recent American Factory) record the testimonies of everyone from folk singer Pete Seeger to Joisey-accented longshoreman Bill Bailey (also an Abraham Lincoln Brigade vet), along with dozens of rank and file members. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the two filmmakers. Academy Award® nomination, Best Documentary Feature.
