Join Catherwood Library and Kheel Center staff for a unique theatrical treat! Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 1951, "With These Hands" reenacts the Cloakmakers' Strike of 1910, the tragic Triangle Factory Fire of 1911, and traces the growth of labor and the garment industry in the first half of the 20th century. 

Produced by the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, the film saw limited theatrical release, and is presented here publicly for the first time in almost 50 years.
