Grand competition program 2 Love in times of coal-based economy / Milosc w czasach gospodarki opartej na weglu Tomasz Siwiński / Poland / 12 / 2021

Synopsis

A prehistoric fish takes the first step on dry land. A cuddling T-Rex couple is about to become extinct. Meanwhile in Poland, it is 1963, and the Winter of the Century is in full swing. Chimneys cheerfully spit out clouds of black smoke. A young coal loader is madly in love with a beautiful crane operator. The heat of his love will not let him freeze while he trudges through snow drifts guided by wild desire. Our hero and heroine, still totally unaware of global warming and excessive CO2 emissions, will play their parts in a human comedy of love and death.
