Directed by Gilles Groulx
Canada, 1959
Documentary, Short


This film provides an introduction to life in a frontier mining community where all roads lead to the pithead. The copper miner’s life is one of contrasts. A mile underground are the rock face, the clattering drills, the dust of explosions; above ground, all the familiar activities of a small town.
