Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class – Meaningful Movies at the Federal Way Library
July 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
“Class Dismissed” unpacks the narrow working class representations from American television’s beginnings to today’s sitcoms, reality shows, police dramas, and daytime talk shows. The film explores the ways in which race, gender, and sexuality intersect with class and how those interpretations negatively shape cultural attitudes and public policies that directly affect the lives of working-class people. A discussion led by Cooper T. Sealy, Lecturer of Cinema and Media at the University of Washington, will immediately follow the film screening.
“Class Dismissed” is part of the program, Meaningful Movies Matinee, a social justice documentary film and discussion series aimed at educating and engaging the Federal Way community every second Sunday.
Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Federal Way Libraries.
Special Guest: Cooper T. Sealy, Lecturer of Cinema and Media at the University of Washington
