** PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EMBASSY OF AUSTRIA **
Earth. It’s our planet’s skin and the base from which all we see around us has grown. Humans also shift several billion tonnes of it around each year in their never-ending quest to transform the planet.
In this Austrian documentary – screening here for the first time in Australia – director Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes and interviews people in mines, quarries, and large construction sites to examine the impact of all this activity.
Earth has won several international awards, including the Ecumenical Jury Prize at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival. Whether you’re interested in the geography of our planet, environmental issues, or simply like watching diggers and dynamite at work, you’re bound to find this documentary very grounding.
