Summary "Bloody Thursday" is an historical documentary about the Pacific Waterfront Strike of 1934, in which longshoremen up and down the West Coast fought for their rights against the forces of shipping companies, politicians and police arrayed against them. In the depths of the Great Depression, facing corrupt hiring practices and deadly working conditions, they went out on strike in a last ditch effort to turn their fortunes around. Throughout the strike, the longshoremen endured withering attacks from the media and police in port cities along the West Coast, yet their courage allowed them to overcome these mountainous obstacles and win the strike. The film tells this story through stunning archival transcripts that tell the inspirational stories of people who lived through this pivotal moment in American history.
