In 2007, the Writers Guild of America, the Screenwriters union, hit an impasse in their contract negotiations with the Studios. At the center of the dispute was jurisdiction over the internet. Unable to make progress, the WGA called a strike which brought Hollywood to a halt for 100 Days.Written by

honest look at behind the scenes from behind the scenes
Few of us who love movies understood what happened during the writers strike. This film goes way behind the scenes of the real behind the scenes. It shows us the real characters who create the characters we all love. (They sometimes are more interesting themselves than their on screen characters.) We come to understand the lives and the struggles of a "Hollywood" writer. We learn that making a living in "Show Biz" is like all management vs. labor conflicts. Management wants to pay a little as possible and the workers need to fight for their every dollar/right. It demonstrates that while you may live for your art, you need to be fairly and justly compensated so you can live. You will see a number of faces you know and many you have only known as a credit on the big screen. Keep your eyes open for some passionate words from people you recognize and share the passion as the writers tell their side of the script.
