Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History
 
42:27
Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Coal Rush (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
01:24:35
Filmed over 5 years in the coalfields of West Virginia, COAL RUSH follows the relentless battle for justice of a rural Appalachian community against a major coal company accused of polluting their drinking water. Husband-and-wife team of independent filmmakers LORENA LUCIANO and FILIPPO PISCOPO shine a spotlight on one of the worst (yet least publicized) industrial contamination disasters in the United States -- billions of gallons of coal waste dumped in the waterways and dwarfing the BP Gulf oil spill. Granted exclusive access by the legal team, and capturing with eloquent cinema verite'-style the local community's everyday life, the directors expose a serious case of environmental wrongdoing from all angles – including the coal company's standpoint -­ while bringing an important story of human suffering into focus. COAL RUSH offers an unprecedented look at some of the most pressing social and environmental issues in America today – concerns over toxins in US tap water, rural poverty, corporate malfeasance, and government failings – through the universally-appealing story of a highly controversial legal saga.

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.

Southeast Kentucky Coal Mining
 
04:45
This is a short video/photo collage of pillaring in Southeastern Kentucky. This is a process of mining the coal pillars which are the primary roof support in an underground coal mine. This process is to allow you to mine the maximum amount of coal, the mine roof just behind the pillars are suppose to collapse, but due to MSHA regulation and fear of injury/death the amount of pillar to be removed is highly limited and the number of timbers/temporary roof support is increased. This often causes the weight on the pillars to ride back behind the working area creating a more dangerous situation than normal.

Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961 Music By Country Singer Vince Gill Bluegrass singers Ricky Skaggs The film you are about to see was made two or three years after Kennie was killed in this mine. Filmed by Bennett and Doug Adams This The Mountain Eagle News Paper that came out 3 days after Kennie Adams coal mine accident. The Date of this accident was December 12th Tuesday 1961 about 12 noon, Kennie Adams was found on December 15th Friday 1961. This is part of the crowd of miners that gathered Wednesday afternoon at the mine opening of B&A Coal Comp. in Knott County to see if they could help in attempts to find the body of Kennie Adams of Van, Ky. partner in the mine. Kennie Adams was one of four men trapped beneath a roof fall Tuesday. Bodies of the other three were removed earlier Wednesday and Kennie Adams is presumed dead. Large groups of miners volunteered their services as soon as the word got out. This picture was snapped for "The Mountain Eagel" by Shade Frazier. Rescue workers were still searching today for the body of Kennie Adams, Van Ky, presumed dead in the debris of a roof fall which took the lives of three fellow miners in Knott county coal mine Tuesday afternoon, Rescue operation in the B&A Coal Comp. mine on Caudill's Branch of Carr Creek ( Known as Rope Works ) in Knott County were forced to halt this afternoon so more timber could be installed within the mine to help insure the safety of the rescue workers. They were expected to resume when the timbers were place, but observers said there was no indication when the body of Kennie Adams night be found. Men returning to Whitesburg today reported the mine roof was "Working Alive" and the conditions were dangerous for the rescue crew. Bodies of three other miners were discovered Wednesday within 20 feet of the edge of the roof fall, which covered an area estimated to be as much as 60,000 square feet and 75 feet high. The rescue workers said the position of the bodies indicated the men had been fleeing the mine when they were caught by the fall. The three bodies removed were those of Josh Noble of Van, Ky. Sidney Bryant of Premium, Ky. and Ben Sexton of Smithsboro Ky. The men were "Pulling Pillars" at the time the fall occurred, some 700 feet from the mine entrance. State Mine Inspector Bill Wright of Whitesburg said the fall occurred about noon Tuesday. Two other men AC Mullins of Breedings Creek, Ky. and Bethel Hall of Isom, Ky. were able to escape from the mine when they heard the fall start. Dave Craft of Smithsboro, Ky. a team operator was outside the mine. As soon as the news of the disaster spread, miners from Letcher, Knott and Perry Counties quickly volunteered their services for the rescue operation. From the first there was little hope of finding any of the men alive. The first shift of rescue workers was sent home about 9:30 pm Tuesday and told to report back the next morning. Another crew took their places. Cars lined the highway leading to Hindman and the dirt road leading to the mine, which is accessible only by truck or jeep in the bad weather. Bitter cold and heavy rain plagued the men waiting outside the mine to see if they were needed in the rescue work. The crowd outside the mine numbered several hundred most of the time. Miners leaving the scene often had to wade the cold water of the branch to reach their cars. The bodies of Sexton and Bryant were brought to Craft Funeral Home in Whitesburg. Sexton, who had been working in the mine only two months, was the father of a three year old daughter. He would have been 23 next Jan 13th. The bodies of Bryant and Sexton were removed about noon Wednesday. Noble's body was discovered shortly afterward, but could not be removed for several hours. All three were badly crushed The body of Kennie Adams one of four Letcher County men trapped last week in a coalmine rock fall in Knott County, was discovered and removed from the mine last Friday. Witnesses said Kennie Adams, a partner in the mine, was found near where the bodies of the other victims were discovered. He was crouched under a slab of rock, they said, and his body was not mangled like those of the others coal miners.

http://dochouse.org/cinema/screenings/harlan-county-usa In a small Kentucky town in 1976, a coal miners' strike is underway. With practically no budget, blagging rolls of film from anyone they could, director Barbara Kopple and her crew pick up their cameras, deciding to capture the ensuing violence enacted by all parties: strike-breakers, local police, company thugs. A significant film of the ‘direct cinema’ movement, forgoing the popular tendency towards voice over and reconstructions, Harlan County USA is a ground-breaking of observational filmmaking that became a powerful tool in the struggle for workers’ rights in America at the time. Superbly edited by Nancy Baker, Mirra Bank, Lora Hays and Mary Lampson, it is easy to see why this deserved winner of 1976 Academy Award for Best Documentary continues to inspire independent filmmakers to this day.

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

Coal may keep the lights on...but it keeps many people in the dark. Through the story of my own experience as a former Appalachian coal miner, Coal Mined is a film about heritage, family, and coming to terms with the impact the coal industry has had on our lives and communities. www.thethoughtfulcoalminer.com -- While studying communications at Berea College​, I realized the importance of documentary film as a means of reaching the public. I took a documentary film class under the direction of Dr. Gordon Gray​ and, along with the assistance of two other students in our group, Dylan K. Mullins​, and Richard Childers, Coal Mined was brought to life. I was hesitant to do a documentary about myself, but time constraints while taking a full course load and having a family meant traveling back home to conduct more interviews was simply impossible. I was eventually able to take a digital editing class with Dr. Jacob Dickerson​, and now almost two years later, I decided to spend some time cleaning up the original cut. It's still very rudimentary, but at least a bit better than the original. Again thanks to Peter Hille of MACED​, Stephen Sanders of the Appalachian Citizens' Law Center​, David Cook of Grow Appalachia​, Terry L Steele​, and Wilma Lee Steele​. for their interviews. Thanks to Anne Lewis and Appalshop​ for footage from Justice in the Coalfields, East Tennessee State University​ for some of the archival photos, and here's a huge shout out to everyone at the Loyal Jones Appalachian Center​ and the dozens of professors at Berea College who saw something in me I often couldn't find.

Hard Coal: Last of the Bootleg Miners (screener copy)
 
01:20:30
Directed by Marc Brodzik and Produced by Woodshop Films. US. 81 mins. Filmed from 2004-2008, completed in 2009. The discovery of anthracite, or hard coal, in northeastern Pennsylvania more than 200 years ago resulted in hundreds of corporate mines in this eleven county area throughout the early 20th century. Although anthracite coal makes up only 2 percent of all the coal reserves in the United States, the area boasts more than 7.3 billion tons of this clean burning coal in a very concentrated geography. In the mid 1800s, there were hundreds of active mines with more than 17,000 coal miners- mostly poor immigrants- toiling in them for twelve hours daily. The corporations had little concern with the health of the workers, and it was extremely dangerous work, with frequent accidents and few safety measures. Miners were burned in gas explosions, crushed by tunnel collapses and run over by mine cars. If they survived the job, many miners suffered the slow and painful suffocation called black lung, caused by continual exposure to coal dust. Today, only 6 anthracite mines are left in Pennsylvania, down from 60 in 1995 and more than 140 a decade earlier. These remaining mines are worked by "bootleg" miners- typically independent, family-centric teams struggling to carry on the family tradition and support their families, working in mines they may have dug themselves. This film will bring you face-to-face with the proud, persevering individuals facing these challenges. Share their frustration with the current system and their fear of losing dignity, independence and the only means of survival they know.
