Screening of the movie “Matewan” in Welch

September 4, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Matewan is the 1987 film written and directed by John Sayles and starring Chris Cooper (in his film debut), James Earl Jones, Mary McDonnell, Will Oldham, and David Strathairn.  The film dramatizes the events of the Matewan Massacre and the events that led to the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921.

Variety Magazine lauded the film, writing, “Matewan is a heartfelt, straight-ahead tale of labor organizing in the coal mines of West Virginia in 1920 that runs its course like a train coming down the track.”
