Movements of a Nearby Mountain, Dir. Sebastian Brameshuber, Austria 2019, 85 min., German and Igbo with English subtitles


Sebastian Brameshuber’s third feature is an elegantly composed, multi-layered portrait of a self-taught mechanic working in a remote, abandoned industrial site at the foot of the Austrian Alps. In the shadow of Erzberg, a ‘mountain of iron’ that has been mined since Ancient Rome, his days are spent in quiet, solitary labour, breaking down cars for parts to export to his native Nigeria. This humane and deeply engaged observational work captures the subtle rhythms and gestures of the mechanics daily life, gradually developing into a profound reflection on labour, industry and the ever-increasing circulation of goods, capital and people in a globalised economy.
