  • THE PLYWOOD GIRLS is a documentary about the women who worked at the Port Alberni plywood mill from its establishment in 1942 until its closure in 1991. Women are interviewed about their experiences as women and as workers in one branch of the male-dominated forest industry.
    Former union representatives and mill managers discuss their perceptions of the plywood girls from World War II and after. In addition to interviews, the video contains vintage photographs, aerial shots of the mill and footage of its destruction in 1997.
