Al Jazeera America's 'Fault Lines' to Premiere "Wisconsin Mining Standoff"

On Saturday, June 14 at 6 p.m. Central Time, Al Jazeera America's Fault Lines will premiere the "Wisconsin Mining Standoff," a half-hour episode which centers on the conflict over a proposed open-pit iron mine in the Penokee Hills of northern Wisconsin.  Produced by 371 Productions, the half-hour episode will spotlight the mining industry's push for what could become one of the largest open-pit mines in North America and the efforts of a coalition of tribes and locals to stop its creation. Beti Films founder Margaret Byrne traveled to Wisconsin earlier this year and served as a cinematographer on the episode.
