Meet the Pioneers 1948

33 mins United Kingdom Director. Lindsay Anderson

This pioneering debut film from director Lindsay Anderson is a lyrical - and enlightening - account of the production of conveyor belts as well as their usage, in coal mines and elsewhere. This subject matter proves unexpectedly cinematic - the photography is atmospheric, and the music nimbly complements the action onscreen, while the commentary from Anderson himself is sometimes brisk but always instructive.
