Workingman’s Death (2005, Michael Glawogger) is an award-winning documentary on the extremes to which workers will go to earn a living.
“Workingman’s Death” follows the trail of the ‘Hereos’ in the illegal mines of the Ukraine, sniffs out ‘Ghost’ among the sulfur workers in Indonesia, finds itself face to face with ‘Lions’ at a slaughterhouse in Nigeria, mingles with ‘Brothers’ as they cut a huge oil tanker into pieces in Pakistan, and joins Chinese steel workers in hoping for a glorious ‘Future’.
122mins, various languages with English subtitles.
