Steel Films

Dear frameworkers:

I've always enjoyed the "films about..." challenges and their
responses. I've got one now. I'm starting a project on the spectacles
of steel working in film - the mills, furnaces, ingots, slag etc.

I have a pretty good sense of some canonical examples: Industrial
Britain, Iven's Komosol, Vertov's Enthusiasm - but I'm sure there's
wonderful experimental films/documentaries that I don't know.

Mainstream films are helpful too, but I've got T2.

Thanks so much,

Sara Gooch
