ABOUT HAWKS NEST TUNNEL: A DOCUMENTARY
The film, with the working title, Hawks Nest Tunnel: A Documentary is an investigative documentary that digs deeply into the largely untold story of government and big business. It uncovers the voices and faces of West Virginians who were impacted by our nation’s largest industrial tragedy. This timely story honors the memory of those who lost their lives at work and tells a critically important moral tale of greed, corruption and big business so representative of our current times of economic hardship and government bailouts for corporations.
