Synopsis

Humanity is constantly trying to appropriate the planet and its one of the most valuable assets: earth. No surprise that each year several billion tons of earth are moved by humans – with shovels, excavators or dynamite. Moreover, large-scale mining which is characterized by extensive landscape change is the most decisive geological factor of Anthropocene. “There are no limits,” finds an ideal description of our times Californian worker in Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s film Earth which weaves together observational footage of machines in operation with conversations with the workers.
