At 3 p.m. Nov. 1, visiting filmmaker Anne Lewis screens “A Strike and An Uprising (in Texas),” an experimental documentary film based on two events: the San Antonio pecan shellers’ strike of 1938, which was led by Emma Tenayuca, and the Jobs with Justice march, led by Nacogdoches cafeteria workers, groundskeepers and housekeepers in 1987.

Lewis’s other films include “On Our Own Land,” “Fast Food Women,” “Justice in the Coalfields” and “Morristown: In the Air and Sun,” a film about factory job loss and the rights of immigrants. Lewis serves on the executive board of the Texas State Employees Union TSEU-CWA 6186 and teaches at the University of Texas.
