"Don't know much about mines? Not many people do. Mines don't talk. Especially about their history."
Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderie relate this history in their latest documentary, THE HOLE STORY, a documentary which continues in the same provocative vein as their earlier FOREST ALERT.
The history of mining in Canada is the story of astronomical profits made with disregard for the environment and human health. The story of nickel in Sudbury, silver in Cobalt, gold in Timmins, copper in Rouyn...Using striking images, rare archival footage, interviews and their trademark humorous social commentary, Desjardin and Monderie make their case against the way mining has been done in Canada with clarity and conviction.
