In the Company of Men illustrates Bill Greaves’s decision to use film as an activist would — as a consciousness-raising tool. To depict, but at the same time, affect, prejudice between white factory foremen and Black workers (termed by management as the “hard-core unemployed”), he brought a psychodramatist into an auto plant so that both sides could improvise common interactions. The film documents the interactions and demonstrates its impact. The actor he chose to lead the exercises, Walter Klavun, had been trained by the founder of psychodrama, J.L. Moreno. Bill Greaves remained interested in the power of psychodrama to change entrenched attitudes throughout his career.
