Which Side Are You On? (1985)
Named after the iconic protest song, Ken Loach’s rarely seen documentary explores the experiences of the miners and their families through the poems and songs they wrote during the Miners Strike of 84/85. Interspersed by interviews and footage from Ogreave, the film was made to counter what Loach saw as the anti-union position of the mainstream media.
