  • ig_____or's rating of the film IEC LONG

    "Iec Long" pays homage to the men, women and children who worked in the Iec Long Firecracker Factory and often perished in work accidents and explosions. The opening dancing number is very charming, and the super 8 segments of the little boys wandering through the ruins of the factory are hauntingly beautiful. A bit noisy, but a lovely short.
