So last week I watched this beautiful film for the fist time in class.
It’s about the Empire Zinc Strike in the 1951 New Mexico, where it was one of the first of its’ kind to advance a feminist social and political viewpoint from a communist perspective. Unfortunately it got blacklisted because of it’s direct involvement in following the strike, but also with the International, and ended up getting shown to 13 movie theatre’s out of 13,000 movie theatre’s about during this time. It covers the International Mill and Smelter Workers actual struggle from a personal level where the wives of the workers took hold of the strike. Check it.
