The trailer for our film "A Piece of Coal" is here.
A Piece of Coal was made as part of a series of short films written by South Yorkshire residents who experienced the miners' strike of 1984-1985. These films were made in collaboration with the Northern Film School and have premiered at the Leeds International Film Festival 2016.
