(Philip Leacock, 1952, Scotland)
An underappreciated gem of Scottish cinema, The Brave Don’t Cry is a moving true story, based on the true life events in Ayrshire of the Knockshinnoch disaster in September 1950. When the walls of the local mine cave in, a dangerous rescue plan is mounted to rescue the 118 men trapped underground. Produced by John Grierson and featuring actors from the Glasgow Citizen’s Theatre, director Philip Leacock brings humour and humanity to a tale of survival, comradeship and community. Preceded by live performance of Scots mining songs from George Duff.
