The Coal Miner's Day

Le jour du mineur

Directed by Gaël Mocaër
France, 2013


Every day, hundreds of men risk life and limb going down into the Buzhanska mine in Ukraine to mine coal with rusty old tools from the Soviet era. It is heavy, unhealthy, hazardous work. Once a year, they are honored during the Coal Miner’s Day.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
