Pine Point interactive documentary

This is a link (again) to a pretty interesting website about Pine Point, a mining town in the Northwest Territories that is no more.  It is not so much photos of what is left, although there are some gorgeous shots of the pits and then-and-now video.  It mostly the stories of those who used to live there, their memories, and the way resource towns live and die by the market. 

Link to it here on the NFB website

Highly recommended. (Though a bit long.)

And thank you to everyone who actually goes out and explores, rather than just posting links like me!
