Nikolaus Geyrhalter visits various sites of underground and surface mining in Europe and North America, sites of development and upheaval, scenes of fundamental change and irrevocable destruction. Erde (Earth) has the character of a sober inventory, made with grandiose tableaux. They show machines that perform the tireless work of digging into disintegrating landscapes, leaving behind immense open wounds in the earth’s crust. And they record what the people working in them have to say about their work and its possible meaning. Geyrhalter’s perspective is defined by patience and accuracy.

Geyrhalter (Homo Sapiens) zeigt in beeindruckend schönen Bildern, woher Marmor kommt oder wie Eisenbahntunnels entstehen. Darüber hinaus ist sein Film ein Essay über die Ausbeutung von Ressourcen als Grundlage der Zivilisation. Ein Highlight ist die Fachsprache der Atomendlager-Experten -- sie reden derart verkünstelt, dass sie wie Poeten klingen.
