Ticking Mine - Trailer 3
«Ticking Mine» is a documentary film project in a developing stage filmed in Chiatura. Here are the Trailer 1 and Trailer 2 Chiatura is a dark and rocky mining town in Western Georgia. Most inhabitants left Chiatura after the collapse of the USSR, rendering buildings, factories and homes dormant and lifeless, however, the rope-ways between the mines have kept working.In Chiatura mines are dug horizontally, roughly 100 meters underground, and after extraction, the tunnels collapse, sinking the surface — and everything above ground. Ticking Mine follows a local explosive engineer, whose job is to detonate and destroy the foundation of his very own home and village.Incorporating observational footage with natural interviews, the film strolls through this surreal and barren town, as tension and the expectation of the villages' collapse looms. An allegory of our civilization, emptying natural resources while ignoring future consequences — this is a captivating and real-life tragicomedy.
