Workingman´s Death 0+

Michael Glawogger, RAK - NĚM 2005, original version / Czech subtitles, 122 min

The film opens with a montage of archive footage from the period when film shaped the archetype of the worker. In compelling images, divided into six chapters, it shows manual labor at the turn of the millenium. Miners creep in the low shafts of illegal mines, sulphur bearers enter the caustic vapors of a volcano, blood splatters all who slaughter animals in harbor abattoirs, the voice of a mezzuin carries above the men of a proud mountain tribe cutting up a beached tanker on the seashore, Chinese steelworkers hope for a bright future while in Germany some of the blast furnaces have been decorated with neon lights – former industrial monsters turned into artefact.
