The short film, produced by Onaping resident Steve Clapp, follows a narrow-vein miner who has a passion for his job and working safely.
The owner of Creative Photography follows Dave Taylor as he does things “the old-fashion way” using tools like a jackleg, stoper and slushing machine.
“This type of mining takes a lot of heart and soul,” Clapp said.
The 16-minute film premieres Oct. 4 at Dynamic Earth. Community members are invited to take in the show, as well as photos from the Cage Call exhibition, from 7-9 p.m.
Copies of Clapp's photobook, HardRock Miner – A Journey Into the Deep, will also be available. For more information, visit www.miningphotos.ca.
