Once the Dust Has Settled

A Canadian town called Asbestos was once home to the largest mine of its kind in the world. Today, the open-pit mine around which the city is established only acts as a constant reminder of a not-so-distant industrial past. This film gives a voice to the current residents of Asbestos, delving into their thoughts on work, change and belonging.
