Barbara Kopple’s Academy Award–winning Harlan County USA unflinchingly documents a grueling coal miners’ strike in a small Kentucky town. With unprecedented access, Kopple and her crew captured the miners’ sometimes violent struggles with strikebreakers, local police, and company thugs. Featuring a haunting soundtrack - with legendary country and bluegrass artists Hazel Dickens, Merle Travis, Sarah Gunning, and Florence Reece - the film is a heartbreaking record of the thirteen-month struggle between a community fighting to survive and a corporation dedicated to the bottom line.

This film documents the coal miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

The more music Arthur Ashin makes, the more it rips itself apart at the seams. His new album as Autre Ne Veut makes his 2013 breakthrough, Anxiety, sound polished, slick, even tame by comparison. Its edges bleed into Twin Shadow’s Confess and How to Dress Well’s Total Loss and Active Child’s You Are All I See, early decade albums that embraced melodrama as though the dream of the ‘80s had never died. It didn’t sound like Ashin was holding anything back at the time, but we hadn’t seen just how unhinged he could get.

Juan, Samuel and Sara leave Guatemala hoping for a better life in the US. On their way, they are joined by a Tzotzil indian boy, Chauk. Together, their journey to America will be a dangerous one, joining many others who travel on this infamous route in search of the American Dream. THE GOLDEN DREAM is Diego Quemada-Diez’s astounding debut feature film. In its realist depiction of friendship and survival against the striking yet dangerous Mexican backdrop, the film is reminiscent of the gripping and moving dramas of Ken Loach, with whom Diego Quemada-Diez collaborated on Carla’s Song, Land and Freedom and Bread and Roses.
