Industrial Elegy  //  Industriální elegie (Orig.)

DIR: Daniela Gébová
2006 / Czech Republic / 70 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

A curious and quaint medley of beauty and ugliness, wisdom and stupidity, joy and sadness, filth and colourfulness. The curious place, where time has draw still. A story of the lost mining settlements in the Northern Moravia and their bizarre inhabitants. Duing the 18th and 19th centuries, they migrated to this area from all corners of Europe to get jobs. Now the settlements are like a god-forsaken open-air museum of old industrial architecture and human qualities. The absurd situations of everyday life raise both tears and smiles.
