Plot Summary: Acclaimed multi-media artist Bill Morrison ostensibly moves in a very different direction in "The Miners' Hymns," in which he uses stunning black and white archival footage of coal miners preserved by the British Film Institute National Archive to create an emotional requiem for a vanished way of life. The film is set to an original score by Icelandic composer Jˇhann Jˇhannsson, whose music has been called "somber, stark and sometimes sinister." "The Miners' Hymns" reinvents how we experience history as it pays tribute to the brutal reality at the heart of the lives glimpsed, however fleetingly.
