Normetal

Top of page

Filmed in the town of Normétal in northern Québec, this film provides a first-hand introduction to life in a frontier mining community where all roads lead to the pithead. Dweller of two worlds, the copper miner's life is one of contrasts. A mile underground are the rock face, the clattering drills, the dust of explosions; above ground, all the familiar activities of a small town.

1960, 17 min 23 s
