Some Will Forget


Some Will Forget




CATALOGUE TEXT
A mining village in South Yorkshire. The mine, one of the last in Great Britain, is about to be closed. Les, a miner in his early 60s, tries to keep the spirit of the legendary strike 30 years ago awake. But the only thing people here are still interested in is the monument for the victims of that time and the right numbers at Bingo. The young leave or become casual labourers. Ruth Grimberg highlights a culture whose biggest fight is against forgetting.
