harlan county, U.S.A - FULL DOCUMENTARY



HARLAN COUNTY U.S.A
In 1973, the miners in Brookside, Harlan County, Kentucky, joined the U.M.W.A union. Their bosses refused to sign a collective agreement. Then begins a strike of thirteen months, which ends with a very fragile victory of the workers-miners. During the conflict, Barbara Kopple filmed the strikers, the entry of women into the struggle, the old miners with silicosis. "This exceptional documentary gives an image of America very different from that, mediatized, mythified to which we are accustomed. But one also discovers "an authentic popular culture, in its songs, its collective memory, its invention of new forms of" living together ". "
