The Strike

From 1884 to 1965, the Lanarkshire mining village of Bothwellhaugh housed the families of miners working for the Bent Colliery Company until it was demolished and flooded to make way for Strathclyde Loch. Hoping to celebrate, commemorate and pay homage to this often-forgotten piece of Lanarkshire people’s history, I combined letterpress typography, spoken word and moving image, both modern and archival, to produce a film that explores the then and now of the area.
