A Vision of Resistance


Shot a few years after the first mining pits were closed in the Ruhr area, Nestler takes his audience on a journey through mining pits, coal heaps, cold stores and to workingmen’s settlements and pubs in the city of Mülheim.

Our take

The third film in our exclusive and rare glimpse at portraits by the great documentarian Peter Nestler heads to the city, and specifically Müllheim in the industry-heavy Ruhr region. In Nestler’s hands, the city becomes an emblem of a post-war country struggling between its past and its future.
