The newly-released 70-minute historical documentary will be followed by a 30-minute discussion and question-and-answer session.

Film creator and author of “Contested Boundaries”, David Jepsen, will be speaking about his film.

“Labor Wars of the Northwest shines new light on tragedies like the Everett Massacre (1916), the Seattle General Strike (1919) and the Centralia Massacre (1919),” the program flyer states.

Tickets are available in advance or at the door, which opens at 1 p.m. Call 360-678-3310 for more information. Admission is $7.

Island County Museum Director Rick Castellano suggests that people reserve tickets.
