    • Synopsis
    • It began with the documentary nature of the first cinema that became a vector for a career for dissimilar directors such as James Benning or Frederick Wiseman, and recently took up the experiments of the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University: this observational edge is not so heterodox and discreet of the cinema, equivalent to the sound stream of the field recordings and which proposes a record from the purest and bare expression of the image. The solo debut of Japanese filmmaker Kaori Oda appeals to this hypnosis by soberly but immersively describing work in a coal mine in Bosnia. The camera silently watches over the miners working tirelessly amidst the endless noise of the machines, of pickaxes, of stones being carried, and of turning cogs echo, and the flickering light of lanterns that illuminates the lugubrious space and the logical discussions in the dynamics of a complicated and dangerous office.
