Harlan County USA Regie Barbara Kopple


it’s a work that typifies the vibrant, non-fiction film activism that is still evolving today. . . . It’s brilliant, observational, reactive, community-focused filmmaking.

Kopple’s riveting documentary classic still reverberates truths about our forgotten working class. The film reminds us how organized labor used to be as American as apple pie, even in places like Kentucky—where unions were once part of the populist fabric.

Kopple’s film is filled not just with the talk — aggrieved, mournful, funny, inflamed — of the miners and their families but with their songs. When bird-boned Florence Reece, nearing 75 at the time, sings her anthem “Which Side Are You On?” to an auditorium of strikers, her voice is almost whisper-soft. The lyrics, though, are emphatic, urgent, and always timely, as is Harlan County U.S.A.
