BEWEGUNGEN EINES NAHEN BERGS / Movements of a Nearby Mountain

BEWEGUNGEN EINES NAHEN BERGS / Movements of a Nearby Mountain

In a remote, abandoned industrial site near a centuries-old ore mine in the Austrian Alps, a self-taught mechanic runs a business exporting used cars and parts to his native Nigeria. As he pursues his lonely day-to-day activities with wondrous serenity, past, present and future begin to overlap, and memories of a lost friendship resurface against the backdrop of a mysterious promise of everlasting resources.
