FORGING the WEST
A Film by HaveyPro Cinema
December 8, 2016
The CF&I story will be the subject of a new documentary film from the Emmy Award-winning team of HaveyPro Cinema, producer of historical documentaries on Denver Union Station, the Colorado Capitol Building, Margaret “Molly” Brown and the highly acclaimed feature documentary on the history of water in Colorado, The Great Divide.
Forging the West will bring the epic story of an essential western industry to life for audiences throughout the state and region. From the impacts of company policies on immigrant workers and their families to the rails, nails, pipe and politics that expedited settlement of a wild frontier, the film draws on the riches of the Steelworks Center of the West archives to tell the human side of a momentous American story.
Premiere showings will be held in Pueblo and in Denver. Rocky Mountain PBS has committed to airing the show throughout Colorado. Additional screenings will be in small regional theatres, local cable channels and film festivals. Film DVDs and digital streaming will also be distributed to 2,000 schools and libraries throughout Colorado.
