"The Miners' Hymns"
Experimental filmmaker and frequent TFF alum Bill Morrison combines newly shot aerial scenes that he filmed himself with historic found-footage images of the mining communities of Northeast England that he culled from the British national archives. Morrison creates a moving and formally elegant tribute to this vanished era of working-class life, enriched by an original score by avant-garde Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.
We don’t waste our time on anything not worth your time. We celebrate the best of what’s coming on film and TV. We cheer when our expectations are met and criticize when we’re let down.
