Black Wagon

There are more than 300 coal mines around the town of Sülüktü in Kyrgyzstan. 500 metres below the surface, light and air are scarce, and the coal beds grow thinner, too. We meet a group of miners who share labour and thoughts in their confined and unsafe underground workplace. Physical exertion and breaks alternate. In order to achieve the daily target, one must be both prudent and willing to take risks.
