30 min. ARD/SWR 2010
A film by Antje Boehmert


In Saarland, relocation for the miner was just as common as shore leave was for a fisher. Now, the end of mining is near and the closing of the mines is just around the corner. Antje Boehmert accompanies a miner on the hard-bitten path from his settled homelife to the life of a work nomad.

„He was down there for a good 22 years, ...and now he has to leave... following the coal... Es heisst Schicht im Schacht.“
THÜRINGISCHE LANDESZEITUNG

„... Antje Boehmert's reportage is one in a very few revealing the extinction of a proud culture. Thus making the film so important.“
NEUE RUHR ZEITUNG


„...she depicts the fate of the miner who is forced to choose between moving or losing his job.“
