Metal Road Film Screening – Flagstaff

November 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

For decades, thousands of Navajos worked the railroads maintaining the trans-continental network. Metal Road enters the world of Navajo families amid the history of railroad work through the lens of one workday on the 9001 Heavy Steel Gang.The Metal Road documentary project was supported by several Project Grant awards.
Filmmaker and Director Sarah del Seronde shared, “I wanted to make Metal Road to shed light on two related, yet often hidden issues: manual labor in the US and Native American Histories. Laborers are often the most economically oppressed people doing infrastructure jobs, but the workers are strong and resilient as demonstrated by the generations of Navajo Railroaders. My hope is their labors will not go unnoticed any longer.”
