Movie Info

Westray is a moving account of the Westray coal mine disaster, which killed 26 men in Nova Scotia on May 9, 1992. Personal stories are brought to the screen in an innovative and dramatic style, tracing the stories of six people -- three miners and three widows -- whose lives were forever changed that day.The film recreates the events that lured workers to the mine, detailing the horror of the explosion and its complex and tragic aftermath. It's a compelling portrait of working men and their wives who had no option but to remain in Westray -- and of a company that violated the most basic rules of mining safety. -- © National Film Board of Canada

  • Westray explains in painful detail how communities will themselves into fatal ignorance.

    Aug 13, 2004
  • The power of the subject matter is undeniable, and there is some amazing footage of the post-explosion inquest, in which the buck is callously passed between every level of the mine's management team.
