"American Socialist: The Life & Times of Eugene Victor Debs", co-written and executive produced by Elizabeth Schwartz ’81 has just been acquired by First Run Features for North American theatrical and non-theatrical distribution. Directed and co-written by Yale Strom (Schwartz's partner in BlackStream Films) and narrated by Amy Madigan, this feature-length documentary explores the life and legacy of the co-founder of the American Socialist movement (and not coincidentally, hero and inspiration to Bernie Sanders) in the context of American populism and social and economic injustice 100 years ago and today.
