AGA movie night: Matewan

matewan-posterComing Saturday evening the AGA will be playing a movie in the library from 7-ish. Join us!

The movie we’re showing is the American masterpiece Matewan (1987):

Mingo County, West Virginia, 1920. Coal miners, struggling to form a union, are up against company operators and the gun thugs of the notorious Baldwin-Felts detective agency. Black and Italian miners, brought in by the company to break the strike, are caught between the two forces. UMWA organizer and dual-card Wobbly Joe Kenehan determines to bring the local, Black, and Italian groups together. While Kenehan and his story are fictional, the setting and the dramatic climax are historical; Sid Hatfield, Cabell C. Testerman, C. E. Lively and the Felts brothers were real-life participants, and ‘Few Clothes’ is based on a character active several years previously.

[Helaas heeft deze film geen ondertiteling! Unfortunately no subtitels!]

The library is open from 2 o’clock, We’ll be serving lentilsoup, bread and gluten free olives from 6.

See you Saturday!
