To our friends at the Blue Grass Drive-In:
I’m the writer/director/producer of the critically-acclaimed feature film WORKING MAN. My movie was scheduled for theatrical release in March, but, like a lot of films, our release was canceled due to COVID 19.
In the coming weeks, I will literally be taking my film on the road with the “WORKING MAN – Made In America Drive-In Tour.”
WORKING MAN is a blue collar movie that celebrates the good working people of the Midwest and, for 10 days, I’ll be traveling by RV and screening the film at select drive-in theaters throughout Middle America.
In addition, WORKING MAN has partnered this month with the Alliance for American Manufacturing, recording a series of podcasts to discuss the importance of the American worker and labor in the U.S.A. You may listen here to this first conversation with our film’s stars Peter Gerety and Oscar nominee Talia Shire.
Thank you for keeping the movies rolling!
Respectfully, Robert Jury
