Acclaimed documentarist Nikolaus Geyrhalter continues his close examination of the way humans alter the earth and change themselves in the process. This time he visits a series of sites around the world, where massive infrastructure works are being carried out: giant excavators dig tunnels in the depths, concrete fortresses are built deep underground to store nuclear waste, and bulldozers move mountains. In all those places—marble mines, mountain passes, salt mines, and dammed rivers—there is no more nature. Subjected to the scrutiny of Geyrhalter’s all-seeing camera, they look like distant alien planets, albeit with human populations. These humans—engineers, planners, laborers—tell the director about the great drama of reshaping the earth.
