Monolithic power plants; billowing columns of smoke; broken up land; the backdrop of a red sun. Ilaria Di Carlo’s Sirens is an experimental short documentary that captures the coal-fired power plants and open pit mines of the Lausitz and North Rhine-Westphalia in their final years of generating energy. Shot entirely from helicopters, the film takes us on a journey through industrial wastelands, thus recalling the passage of Ulysses’ boat through the Sirens’ strait. An odyssey through the dystopian industrial world that has left a permanent mark on earth’s ecosphere.
