Burrowing through the dark vein of German Expressionism and Soviet propaganda films comes Chernozemm (Black Earth). Written and directed by Judd Brucke and produced by the Glasgow based multi-disciplinary art collective 85A, this is a horror tale of a man with a factory for a head that struggles for survival in a post-apocalyptic world.

Paying aesthetical homage to Weimar-era cinema and industrial documentaries, this is thematically a classic chase-movie wrapped in the cloak of the Kunstmärchen. Shot entirely on VHS and filmed in the hidden, crumbling shadows of a bygone era, Chernozem not only serves as a sideway document to Glasgow's fading industrial past, but strips hi-def films right down to the bone, stoking the fires of deracinating, thunderous filmmaking!
