Cloudy Mountains
구름을 만드는 산
  • 국제환경영화경선
Synopsis The southern foot of the mountains in Lop Nur in western China is rich in asbestos. The workers create dust while
exploiting the asbestos, from far away it looks like a cloud-making machine, puffing clouds into the air. The use of
big machines increases the asbestos mining capacity, but the lack of relevant environmental protection facilities
leads to a large amount of dust blotting out the sun. Though people working in such a harsh environment live a
hard and isolated life, they have not lost their joy of living, because they have found a way to make money, which is
the hope of their lives.
