Special Labor Screening. On the day after the centennial of Joe Hill’s execution by the state of Utah, we commemorate this legendary International Workers of the World songwriter-organizer with a documentary on another socially committed singer, Phil Ochs. Esteemed by such artists as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, and Pete Seeger, Ochs also made powerful enemies due to his opposition to the Vietnam War and his support for civil rights and workers’ struggles. As Billy Bragg sang, “The FBI harassed you Phil, they smeared you with their lies. Says he, ‘but they could never kill what they could not compromise. I never compromised.’”
