My Deadly, Beautiful City uncovers the veiled world of a Siberian Arctic mining city and how an unstoppable, unconditional passion for industrial wastelands makes its people blind to the threatening reality they face.
Their relationship with their deadly beautiful world is a chilling mirror of our own attitudes towards the earth.
