Documentary & Discussion: With These Hands
Saturday, 1/19/2013
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
TechShop Raleigh-Durham

What do the demise of the American furniture industry and TechShop have in common? One is a question and the other an answer -- maybe. Come and find out for yourself. As a special offering for our community, we are showing the 76-minute documentary, With These Hands, and hosting a Q&A discussion with associate producer David Williams and filmmaker Matt Barr, followed by a two-minute TED talk by TechShop CEO Mark Hatch. The film documents the closure of the Hooker Furniture Factory in Martinsville, Va., as seen through the eyes of several of the workers and the head of the family-run company.

Join us for a thought-provoking and action-inspiring evening. FREE! We will provide movie snacks and beverages.
