Humans are the most decisive geological factor of our time.

With stunning visuals of the landscapes that humans struggle to overpower, Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s film is a breath-taking look at the scale and force of the work involved.

Several billion tons of earth are moved annually by humans – with shovels, excavators or dynamite.

From America, to Italy to Hungary, workers share their experiences and ideas around their battle to overcome the earth – the risks and the labour involved.

One worker is proud that he can say he moves mountains for a living, another worker isn’t quite sure why they’re doing it – yet there are no limits in the pursuit for domination.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
