Video Notes:
"Keeping On" was the only "fiction" film directed by documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple. Like her earlier Harlan County USA and The American Dream, the film examines a labor-management struggle in a hardscrabble Southern mill town. Dick Anthony Williams plays a minister who encourages the activities of labor unionist James Broderick. Williams' stand polarizes the community, and the cleric is ostracized by the so-called "right" people. Completed in 1981, Keeping On premiered February 8, 1983 on PBS' American Playhouse. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide.
