The toil of the workingman is the fascinating subject for this
documentary from Austrian director Michael Glawogger. Taking five
groups of workers from five different countries, Glawogger looks at
the perils of being a coal miner in the Ukraine, a slaughterhouse
worker in Nigeria, a sulfur miner in Indonesia, a ship-breaker in
Pakistan, and a steel worker in China. Some of the conditions these
men work in will come as a shock to the average office worker, and
provides viewers with an important perspective on the harsh treatment
meted out to certain factions of the workforce.
Austrian director Michael Glawogger divides his documentary into a
number of extended vignettes. In Heroes, college graduates cant find
work in the desolate post-Soviet period in the Ukraine. So they
descend upon abandoned, frigid coal mines. There they imperil their
lives squeezing into crumbling tiny crawl spaces, in order to extract
bits of coal to sell and eke out a subsistence. The free lance miners
are embittered and demoralized, and Glawogger contrasts them with
images from the past of optimistic, radiant Soviet coal miner
In the chapter Ghosts, Glawogger moves on to Indonesia, where workers
wind their way up and down the surreal, treacherous basin of a volcano
under a punishing sun, gathering sulfur in overloaded, creaky bamboo
baskets. The plumes of sulfur gas are visually captivating, yet
unimaginably disturbing in the unspoken poisonous toll they are
simultaneously inflicting on these impoverished workers lives.
Other episodes include the casual carnage of an unsanitary open air
livestock slaughterhouse in Nigeria, with blood and entrails flowing
unheeded through the city streets. Then in Pakistan, despairing
migrant workers engage in the dangerous labor of dismantling gigantic
oil carriers, while praying to Allah that theyll survive the task.
The documentary concludes at a vast, defunct German steel mill that
has been unbelievably transformed into an amusement park, complete
with a light show. Meanwhile, young couples seek out remote corners
among the rusty former smelting furnaces, to engage in a little sex.
While the experience of Workingmans Death is rich in visual material
for contemplation or just plain wonder, there is at the same time a
gnawing feeling of voyeuristic objectification of these workers. Its
as if the leisure class were sitting back and whimsically beholding
their house servants sweating away at domestic tasks.
