UK, 1966 (MIFF 1968, Programme 13)
Director: Tom Scott Robson
A harsh study of a man in a jarringly unfamiliar British landscape, County Durham. It is an area pitted and scarred by industry and coal mining, in which a small, violent group of men have a strange occupation: gathering coal washed up on the beach from undersea seams.
