Piotr Armianovski, Miners’ Stories, 43m, 2016
Victor and Oleksandr live in the mining towns of two geographically remote regions of Ukraine. While their lives and the lives of their relatives revolve around mines, there is another side. Who they really are? What makes them go underground every day? Through memories and glimpses into the daily life of mining towns we take a closer look at our main characters, understand how similar and different they are, how the crisis of the mining industry and events in eastern Ukraine are impacting their lives.
