This week’s Film Clip Friday post features Italian director Valentina Pedicini’s 2013 documentary Dal Profondo, which loosely translates to “From the Deep” in English.
Pedicini’s award winning film explores one of Italy’s last coal mines where 150 men and one woman (Italy’s only female miner) work in increasingly difficult conditions. In a dramatic twist, the miners all band together to protest the imminent closing of the mine. This documentary received awards from several major European film festivals, but has not been widely distributed in the US.
