Factories closed; Unions ignored; The Tramp asks, "What's Next"?
Chaplin previews a world beyond the factory and unionism where one's identity is as fragile as one's last pay check and where even a walk into the sunset leads to nowhere in particular.

Action Speaks looks at contemporary issues through the lens of history by using under-appreciated moments of the twentieth-century, and provides a venue for fellow citizens to engage in thoughtful discussions about history, culture, and current events.

This year Action Speaks looks at moments when the rights of the individual have clashed with the needs or beliefs of the public and where the line between private and public has been defined or blurred.
