Their likes shall not be there again

A small tribute to the Waterford Crystal Factory in Kilbarry, Ireland, which I filmed during a family visit in August of 1998. The factory closed under unfavorable circumstances on 30 January 2009; workers staged a two-month sit-in to protest the closing, which only ended in March of that year when they accepted a payout of €10m, but many had worked there all their lives. A PBS Documentary chronicled their last fight.

The cinematography here is not the best, but I’m pleased with the video; the music seems to say just the right thing.
