Event Detail

A Rock and a Hard Place

Cliff Caines |  Canada | 2015 |  78 minutes Red Lake Ontario is home to one of the richest gold mines in the world. It’s also the hometown of filmmaker Cliff Caines, who makes the mine the subject of his debut feature, A Rock and a Hard Place. Goldcorp is the sole employer in town, and like other small towns that are dependent on a single resource, the citizens of Red Lake need the mine to continue. More ethnographic than expository, the film presents a cinematic portrait of the complex relationship between the mine and its workers.
