SYNOPSIS

“Water & Coltan” transports its viewer directly to the places of the struggle of women in artisanal coltan mining camps in South Kivu in Democratic Republic of Congo. Superimposed with a posthuman near-future scenario of the former coal mining Ruhr area in Germany the 360° documentary immersive experience combines two local sides of one and the same violent global phenomenon: the extractivist relation to natural and human resources with its long-term consequences for the environment and society.
