Erdem Tepegöz’s steampunk dystopian vision invites comparisons with the worlds of Andrei Tarkovsky and Terry Gilliam. The Miner (Numan Acar) toils in a coal factory controlled by an omnipresent surveillance system. Is this the labour camp of a Solzhenitsyn novel? Is Big Brother watching him? Tepegöz sustains the intrigue as we follow a daily routine of brutal work, basic rations and precious sleep. When the Miner contracts a mysterious disease, he conceals his scars and contacts the Officials. It is the first step in questioning the regime and becoming a force for change.
