The Miners' Hymns

Directed by Bill Morrison
United Kingdom, 2011

The ill-fated coal mining communities in North East England are the subject of this inspired documentary by artist Bill Morrison. Their story is told entirely without words, yet the film is far from silent: it features a remarkable original score by the Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.
