NY  Premier: With Banners Held High (31 min) celebrates the resilience and humor of miners and women who went through the 1984/5 Miners’ Strike. The year long strike was one of the most defining industrial actions in recent history. Personal interviews with ordinary people from the Strike and the use of music, photographs, and archive material, make for an insightful, moving film that brings the experience of the Strike into perspective 30 years on.


NY Premier: Women of the Mine (Mujeres de la Mina) (60 min); Portrait of three women who live and work in the mines of Cerro Rico, Potosi, Bolivia-a symbol of colonial plunder. Work in the mines belongs to men, yet women are the most precarious and cursed link of the system. Three women open their lives to us so we can discover their stories of struggle and resistance.
