Laura Sky

1981, 24:00 minutes, colour, English


Moving Mountains  focuses on a group remarkable women who were the first coal miners in Canada. They are brave, funny, smart ,and are great advocates. The film documented  their efforts to win job opportunities, equity and recognition for their skills and abilities, while exploring the resistance to their inclusion  among their  male colleagues. The documentary is energetic, affirming and  shows an important  historical development  in the labour movement and in the women’s movement.
