Documentary & Discussion: Long Haulers w/ Amy Reid
June 2, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Long Haulers weaves together stories of courage, tenacity, and humor from three women in the trucking industry. From 77 year-old Sandi, who’s hauled for 35 years, to formally incarcerated Lori, to Tracy, hauling furniture out of the mid-west, Long Haulers defies stereotypes and gives a platform to women who have often been marginalized and type-casted. Sharing stories of sorrows and triumphs, Long Haulers lets viewers understand who these women are, and what keeps them trucking.
See the film, which is a work-in-progress, and talk with Amy Reid about her experiences and intentions in making it.
