Wisconsin Rising

A film by Sam Mayfield

NYC - Times Square and Greg Palast

Struggle permeates beyond walls and state lines. Although many in the audience at the New York City, CUNY screening had never heard of the Wisconsin uprising they were fired up before the end of the night. They understand that what happened in Wisconsin impacts people all over the country.

After the screening we walked to Times Square and snapped an impromptu interview. Later I caught up with investigative journalist, Greg Palast. He was animated as always. Asking repeatedly, “Sam, why do you give a shit?”
