Red Metal: The Copper Country Strike of 1913 explores an epic labor strike that devastated Michigan's Copper Country-and haunts the American labor movement to this day. Produced and directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Silvers, the program traces the Copper Country strike from its hopeful start to that tragic conclusion. Between those endpoints, the film explores the intensifying battle between organized labor and corporate power, as well as the strike's cultural legacy, which influenced national discourse, music, and legislation during the Progressive Era and the New Deal.
