These Shining Lives
by Melanie Marnich, director Macey Levin
A true story of survival based on four women who worked in a watch factory in Ottawa, IL, painting glow-in-the-dark radium onto dial faces. It dramatizes the peril women faced in the 1920s workforce, and the lack of concern by businesses to protect the health of employees. The four refuse to allow the company that stole their health to destroy their spirits or imperil women who follow.
