(2012) WHERE HEAVEN MEETS HELL

CO-PRODUCER, COMPOSER

WHERE HEAVEN MEETS HELL follows four of the nearly 500 sulfur miners working at Kawah Ijen, an active volcano in Indonesia. This intimate portrait chronicles their attempts to escape the endemic poverty and lack of education that haunts their community. Drawing strength from their families and their Muslim faith, the miners search for meaning in their daily struggles and triumphs.
