Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class

by Travis Gertz

This is a full-length documentary based on the book Class Dismissed by Pepi Leistyna. It explores the ways television and mainstream media depict the working class in our society. Fascinating, informative, and more relevant than ever.

“Class Dismissed breaks important new ground in exploring the ways in which race, gender, and sexuality intersect with class, offering a more complex reading of television’s often one-dimensional representations. The video also links television portrayals to negative cultural attitudes and public policies that directly affect the lives of working class people.”
