Kawah Ijen (The Solitary Crater)

Synopsis

Kawah Ijen is an active volcano. It is also the site of labour intensive sulpher mining. There is no machinery, only a stream of hardy local labourers.
 
A contemporary twist on the myth of Sisyphus, the film follows these miners on their gruelling journey - from crater to wage clerk - ultimately questioning the ritual of labour.
