    see all cast/crew...
Studio: Alive Mind
Genre: Documentary, Political & Social Issues
Running Time: 122 min.

In this film showcasing six of the most dangerous jobs on the planet, Mega Cities director Michael Glawogger travels the globe to turn his lens on the men who labor in these deadly but necessary jobs day after grueling day. Structured in six chapters that take the viewer everywhere from the Ukraine, where workers snake down a 16-inch tall mineshaft to collect coal, to Pakistan, where migrants disassemble oil tankers piece-by-piece with their bare hands, Glawogger's film focuses on the ravages of manual labor on the human body and the determination of the men who endure these tasks to build a better future for their children and families. Other thankless jobs showcased in Glawogger's feature include Indonesian sulfur miners who brave volcano basins and Nigerian workers who slaughter goats and cattle so that they may use the parts to sterilize blazing pits of burning tires. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
