The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant

With remarkable access, this Oscar-nominated short follows workers affected by the closure of a General Motors plant in Ohio, as they prepare to build one final truck on the assembly line. Talking with the workers on the plant floor, in their cars and over beers at the bar, The Last Truck evocatively shows the human impact of not just the plant closing, but the loss of an entire social ecosystem.
