2011 Nonprint Award: At Home in Utopia
]At Home In Utopia looks at how immigrant radicalism has reworked American values and mores. The film tracks the rise and fall of a cooperative apartment complex in the Bronx housing 2000 Jewish garment workers, many of whom were Communists. An epic tale of the struggle for social justice from the 1920s into the 1950s, the film pays close attention to the passions that bound this community together and then tore it apart.
“At times the mixture of courage and naivete is enough to break your heart.”
–Ty Burr, Boston Globe
