The Miner chronicles one person’s epiphany and refusal to continue wrecking himself and the earth. Filastine teamed up with cinematographer Astu Prasidya and Jakarta street dancer Al Imran Karim to descend into clouds of poisonous gas to stage a dance performance in the Kawah Ijen sulfur mines of Java, and disguised themselves in company uniforms to infiltrate the coal pits of Borneo. Coal is dirtiest of all fossil fuels, a chief culprit in climate change, and Indonesia is the world's largest exporter.
