AsturianUS

A docu film by Luis Argeo.

The town of Arnao (Asturias, Spain) grew under the wing of a Mining and Zinc Company. After the closure of its coal mine at the beginning of the 20th century, many of its employees emigrated to West Virginia and Pennsylvania, searching for the American dream. In Spelter (WV) and Donora (PA), the descendents of those Asturian workers want to preserve their roots and traditions. But now, they are AsturianUS.
