UTA film shares history, teaches safety
Tuesday, January 10, 2017
"Remember Wilberg" is a documentary produced by UTA's Department of Art and Art History about a December 1984 fire at the Wilberg Mine in Emery County, Utah. The fire killed 27 coal miners.
The documentary took more than two years to produce, and was completed in association with Safety Solutions International, Inc. While it honors the victims of the disaster, it will also be used as a safety training tool for coal miners. A $1.3 million federal grant written by film director Elaine Cullen was awarded to UTA's Division of Enterprise Development to fund the project.
