White Coal

Directed by Georg Tiller
Austria, 2015


An industrial film on two kinds of labour: socialist and capitalist. A poetic investigation of human relations with the soil and the Earth. A striking journey from Poland to Taiwan that makes us think, contemplate and dream. Pure film.

  • Jorge Sobral's rating of the film White Coal

    Part in film, black and white, a coal plant/ship in Poland with a more narrative approach, and other part shot in video, color, like a documentary, "retro sci-fi", says the director, in a coal-fired power station in Taiwan. An attention essentially formal, there is above all a very analytical study and look at the plants and the different filmic formal approaches; a bland look.
