The filmmaker Max Hureau crossed Eastern Europe filming and photographing the work
and conditions of coal miners. His fascination for this profession took him on a journey of over 7000 km, from Polish Silesia to Central Siberia, where he witnessed unbearable human misery.Throughout this journey, miners, miner’s wifes and unionists tell us about what they live, what they have to endure and how they fight to keep their dignity.The filmmaker seized the opportunity to film a profession and a culture that is about to collapse, while the number of miners
is still considerably high.
