Sorry We Missed You is a powerful drama about an English family trying to patch their life back together after experiencing hardship. Hope comes when the father seizes on an opportunity for self-employment. But as the story of their uphill battle to reclaim financial security and human dignity unfolds, the film reveals itself as a damning indictment of labor exploitation and of the gig economy. A humane portrait of the everyday lives of workers, Sorry We Missed You is consistently poignant and persuasive.

Joanne B. Ciulla, Professor and Director of the Institute for Ethical Leadership at Rutgers, will lead the post-film discussion. Professor Ciulla is a pioneer in the field of leadership ethics and her research draws heavily on literature in philosophy and history. 

The post-film discussion will be held virtually via WebEx, is open to the public, and registration is required to receive the link to the discussion.
