Red Metal: Copper Country Strike of 1913
- Genre: Special Interest-Us History
- Release Date: 1/14/2014
Film director Jonathan Silvers takes the helm of this documentary exploring the 100th anniversary of Michigan’s Copper County strike, where the divisions between rich and poor, management and labor were so severe that union supporters (including 73 of their children) were killed in an officially yet-unsolved auditorium massacre. Issues of unsafe conditions, unchecked corporate power and immigration were the issues of 1913 but sound is if they could have been ripped from the pages of today’s papers. 2013/color/60 min/NR/widescreen.
