(Producer) In 1920-s Mingo County, WEst Virginia coal miners struggling to form a union are up against company operators and gun thugs. Black and Italian miners, brought in by the company to break the strike, are caught between two forces: Union activists and ex-Wobbly Joe Kenehan (Chris Cooper), sent to help organize the union by bringing the local, Black, and Italian groups together. Inspired by a true story many were killed in the Matewan Massacre, but the young Danny Radnor, a coal miner and preacher, lived to spread the gospel of union.

Excellent movie about the labor movement and the ruthless attempts by companies to keep the workers from organizing.
