Way Down in the Hole (Video)
With an aesthetic style that blurs the line between past and present, Way Down in the Hole tells the story of the bloody Ludlow, Colorado coal miners' strike of 1913-1914, and illuminates its significance to contemporary social justice movements. The film is a meditation on class struggle, national identity, and violent insurrection, played out across the wild frontier of the industrial American west.
