Work or to Whom Does the World Belong

El trabajo o a quién le pertenece el mundo
Elisa Cepedal
2019 • Spain, United Kingdom • 65’

A housing estate once more becomes a battlefield as strikers and police clash. After the failure of the last strike, workers are faced with the choice between action and apathy. The film observes a mining community through the prism of ethnofiction as it negotiates the decline of the same industry that enabled its emergence. A long period of deindustrialisation affecting the whole region gives way to a decaying landscape of pitheads and slag heaps.
