Matewan recounts the true story of a West Virginia coal town, where the local miners’ struggle to form a union turned into an all-out war in 1920. When Matewan’s miners go on strike, organizer Joe Kenehan arrives to help them, uniting workers white and black, Appalachia-born and immigrant, while urging patience in the face of the coal company’s violent provocations. Matewan taps into a rich vein of Americana, issuing an impassioned cry for justice that still resounds today. Critically-acclaimed songwriter and Americana folk icon Will Oldham will introduce this 1987 historic drama.
