In the second of our live, in-person interviews at Sundance 2024, award-winning directors Brett Story (“The Prison Landscape in Twelve Landscapes”) and Stephen Maing (“Crime + Punishment”), along with Amazon Labor Union (ALU) president Chris Smalls, the film’s main protagonist, join Ken to discuss the world premiere of “Union”.

In this riveting, verité documentary, we meet Chris and other current and former employees inside a tent (ALU’s makeshift HQ), as they form an independent, grassroots labor movement to unionize Amazon’s largest fulfillment center in New York City. What begins as a longshot fight against one of the world’s largest companies, eventually becomes the most watched labor election in decades. Brett, Stephen and Chris discuss the immense challenges faced by the union, its highly effective efforts to galvanize Amazon workers, and the creative spark set off by this union of two acclaimed filmmakers.
