The Ballad of Dorothy Dunn

An agitprop music-drama set in 1930's California during one of the most turbulent labor strikes in American History. A Catholic activist (character inspired by the legendary Dorothy Day) seeks to steer a humanitarian course through the clashing rocks of right and left with advocates.

Expressionistic multimedia techniques - original songs, motion graphics, headlines, radio broadcasts and newsreel clips add insight into the narrative.
