The Miners’ Hymns

MPA, in partnership with Forma, are delighted to be able to bring this beautiful and evocative film to Lancashire.  American artist Bill Morrison's film celebrates the social, cultural and political aspects of the UK coal industry, providing a timely reminder of economic and political choices made a generation ago regarding the role of industrial labour. The story is told without words, yet the film is far from silent, it features a remarkable original score by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.  The Miners' Hymns screening is FREE but places are limited, please book yours here.
