The Siege

Obliehanie mesta; Vít Janeček,Zuzana Piussi, 2019, versions: OR, languages: slk

Director: Vít Janeček, Zuzana Piussi

A film about combating mining companies in a small medieval town of Kremnica that was never conquered in history. Over the course of a seven-year time lapse project, we watch the local citizens battle both local and international mining companies that want to join forces in mining for gold and minerals in mountain ridges just hundreds of metres from the town’s historical centre with many rare natural habitats. The film is split into two parts about local and global conquerors. The local conquerors extract bentonite clay and they are companies allied with the authorities and “consecrated” by the Roman Catholic Church that owns the mountain forests. The beautiful Kremnickévrchy mountain range is slowly turning into moonscape. The film reveals that there is no institution in Slovakia that would protect nature or force companies to reclaim the environment they have destroyed.
