Stand! In theatres Friday

On Friday, November 29, the movie musical Stand! will be released in Cineplex theatres to audiences across Canada.
The movie, already called the “next Norma Rae,” is the result of a partnership between the labour movement in Canada and the United States, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the movie’s producers.
The movie, set during the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike, is about an immigrant Romeo and Juliet's battle for love and a better future during a time of social upheaval. Director Robert Adetuyi (Stomp the Yard and Bring It On) teams up with Roy Wagner, a 2-time Emmy Award-winning cinematographer, in this movie adaptation of Juno Award-winning composer Danny Schur and Rick Chafe’s musical, Strike.
