Archaeological dig. Water. Superimposed caption: "Ulf Langheinrich, the composer of this music grew up in Wolfen Bitterfeld in the former German Democratic Republic. The area was notorious for its astonishing landscape, a product of massive open cast mining and chemical production. Although much of the devastation belongs to a past era, some brown coal mining continues using machinery made before World War II. The music in this film is derived from the sounds of these industries."
