Double Feature: The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant / North Dixie Drive
Back to back documentaries focusing on the socioeconomic climate in Dayton OH.

Screening 3:55 - The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant
(40 minutes)
Dir. Steven Bognar & Julia Reichert

2010 Oscar nominee: Best Documentary (Short Subject)
This 40-minute documentary focuses on the workers of the General Motors Assembly Plant in Moraine, Ohio  which opened in 1981, and churned out an average of 280,000 small trucks and SUVs a year  from the announcement a year ago that the Plant will be closing, to its last day on December 23, 2008, just two days before Christmas. While the workers are shocked that they will be losing their jobs, we quickly see they are also losing much more: the pride they share in their work, the camaraderie built through the years, and the shared concerns about what their collective futures will hold. As the major industry in Moraine closes its doors for good, many see its demise as an indication of the changing American manufacturing landscape, which seems to be dying as products are increasingly being made elsewhere. The film offers a snapshot of a moment in America where we may be seeing the end of the blue-collar middle class.

Screening 4:45 - North Dixie Drive (52 minutes)
Dir. Eric Mahoney

Official Selection for the 2011 New Filmmakers Festival in New York City.
North Dixie Drive is the portrait of a small community of businesses and people residing in the Northridge section of Dayton, OH. It is the story of big time wrestlers, mechanics, a donut salesmen, an eccentric country singer, barbers, exotic dancers and car repo men. This collection of people, from all walks of life, live and work around a traffic circle situated along highway I-75, and fight to keep their lives and careers afloat in a failing economy.
