THE KILLING FLOOR tells the struggle to build an interracial labor union in the Chicago Stockyards. The screenplay by Obie Award winner Leslie Lee is from an original story by producer Elsa Rassbach and is based on actual characters and events, tracing ethnic and class conflicts seething in the city’s giant slaughterhouses, when management efforts to divide the workforce fuel racial tensions that erupt in the deadly Chicago Race Riot of 1919.
