Dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter - 2019 - Austria - Subtitles in English
Several billion tons of earth are moved annually by humans - with shovels, excavators or dynamite. Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes people, in mines, quarries and at large construction sites, engaged in a constant struggle to take possession of the planet.
"The Carrara quarries are genuinely majestic, the mountains carved into giant staircases or hollowed out to create vast luminous temples, with orange hi-vis figures pacing around like miniscule priests."
