Summary
Glawogger deconstructs contemporary conceptions of work by showcasing six of the most grueling and dangerous professions he could find. At once a rejoinder to those predicting the death of manual labour and a ground-level lesson on globalization, the film makes the efforts of these impoverished men something heroic. They represent a forgotten kind of courage. All of this work is captured in Glawogger's characteristic stunning compositions, with an eye for the harsh grandeur of elemental and industrial environments. Features Ukrainian miners working in abondoned coal mines, Indonesian sulphur gatherers, Nigerian slaughterhouse workers, Pakistani shipbreakers, Chinese steelworkers and German smelters
