SPRENGBAGGER 1010

BLAST EXCAVATOR 1010

Carl-Ludwig Acház-Duisberg
Germany, 1929, 89 Min

Structural change in 1929: The engineer Hartmann developed a new overburden excavator which is to be used after brown coal is found under his village. The conflict between enthusiasm for technology and loss of homeland unfolds as a triangular story between him and two women. Industrial reportage, silent film melodrama and rediscovered archive gold.

While Hartmann's superior and his assistant push ahead with the construction of the excavator, both his fiancée and his mother, who has been running a mill owned by the family for centuries, oppose the plans for resettlement and devastation. He has to make up his mind ... The film, shot in the Central German mining district and in the Leuna works, impresses above all with the expressionistic shots of a monstrous machinery, which is shown in its destructive power, and the dynamic montage. In addition, we encounter two strong, very modern female figures, whose equality intensifies the tension between capitalist expansion and the preservation of landscape and homeland. The original score of the "Maschinenmusik" (music of the machine) for chamber orchestra, oxygen bottles, work sirens and chorus ("Kohle, Kohle!" / “Coal, Coal!”) was re-recorded in 2011 for arte and WDR. Despite a surprising summary at the tragic end – an avant-garde document of early ecological consciousness. GL
