Divided We Fall develops a case study of a pivotal moment in US labor history that will be useful for courses in Sociology, Political Science, and Labor studies. The chapter menu contains 14 chapter markers with thumbnail videos of each chapter, making it easy for an instructor to identify clips needed for a class or workshop presentation. Check out our suggestions for educational and training discussions.

A DVD can last years, allowing for many public performances of the film. (Most current public performance licenses sell for up to $500 and limit the licensor to a one to three year term during which they may publicly exhibit a streamed film.)

In Wisconsin, our public performance license is discounted 20% to $240 (plus tax).

* About public performance licenses:
Adopted in 1976, the US Copyright Act, Title 17 of the United States Code, establishes that the public performance of copyrighted motion pictures and other audiovisual programs that are legally available and intended for personal, private use only, such as DVDs and other digital formats, whether streamed or downloaded, is illegal without a public performance license. This legal requirement applies equally to for profit and non-profit organizations.
