In the history of Hollywood there are few films with a story behind its making as dramatically riveting as that of Salt of the Earth. Made during the McCarthy era by blacklisted filmmakers who were among the best Hollywood talent of the day, SALT OF THE EARTH is a powerful, emotionally charged film.

During production, the blacklisted cast and crew were attacked by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) yet Salt of the Earth is now considered one of the most important American films in history.

Based on actual events, this landmark film depicts a strike by Mexican-American mineworkers in New Mexico. With the exception of five actors, the cast comprises non-professionals, mostly participants in the real-life strike.

The film is remarkably prophetic in its portrayal of the wives of the oppressed workers which seem to anticipate the women's liberation movement that would rise over a decade later. During the struggle, women evolve from the men's subordinates into their allies and equals.
