Kartemquin is sad to learn of the death of Kenneth Appelhans. Kenneth was the leader of the strike action to prevent the closure of Pullman Standard depicted in our 1983 film The Last Pullman Car. We salute Kenneth as a lifelong advocate for worker's rights and social justice, and offer our condolences to his family. We hope to be able to raise funds to release The Last Pullman Car on DVD in the next year. The film will also screen later this year in Chicago as part of our 45th anniversary retrospective.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
