“The real work is being done by people who are not known, that’s always been true in every popular movement in history...I don’t & know how you get that across in a film.. but I thought Salt of the Earth really did it” – Noam Chomsky Originally blacklisted in the US for fears of it being too subversive, Salt of the Earth tells the true story of the wives of striking zinc miners in New Mexico and is performed by those who took part in it. Salt of the Earth focusses on the internal tensions of the strikers: between the white workers and the Mexican immigrants and between the strikers and the women they struggle to see as their equal.
