In a village in the North of England there is a march to commemorate the bitter defeat of the Miners’ Strike of 30 years ago. For 100 years Hatfield Colliery has stood at the heart of the village. Now, with the urgent imperative for clean energy, it is one of Britain’s last coal mines and faces closure whilst cheap imported coal floods the market.
Ruth originally worked as a local newspaper photographer before studying photography at the London College of Printing. A few years ago Ruth completed a Documentary Filmmaking MA and whilst working as a visiting lecturer has written, filmed and directed two short documentaries funded by Film London and Creative England. Her work focuses on the world close to home to reveal stories with a wider universal resonance. Originally from Singapore she is now based in London. Her 2014 film ‘Across Still Water’ premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, was long-listed for a BAFTA and was awarded Best Documentary at the Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2015.
