Summary Proud Valley: an African American sailor comes to a Welsh coal mining town in 1938 and helps re-open the mine at the cost of his life..
Native Land: a political semi-documentary formed from staged reenactments, leads viewers on an emotional tour of the pre-World War II U.S. and its freedom-based ideologies and looks at the the forces it sees as threatening to undermine America's strengths from within: greedy capitalists, professional strikebreakers, and the Ku Klux Kan.
