Fund raising for a documentary film by D. S. Pushkin

New York, NY – New Kranfilm member launches fund raising for a documentary film
“The Hawks Nest Tunnel” (working title).

Ddspavid S. Pushkin said his film “will be a comprehensive look at the Hawks Nest Tunnel and its relationship to the current issue of industrial regulations. … One of my goals is to help keep good safety laws in place and to remind governments to enforce those laws.”

At least 764 workers (possibly more than 2.000) died as a result of the tunnel’s construction between 1927-1932, and according to historians, more than two-thirds of them were black. This was the worst industrial disaster in the history of the US and Union Carbide was guilty of an “industrial mass-killing” that foreshadowed the Bhopal disaster.
