Friday, the 17th of July 1998 was the day that forever changed life in the small, idyllic community of Lassing. A story caught between misery and hope, sad certainty and immediate relief.
The Miracle of Lassing - Chronology of a Catastrophe
2 x 45' (GER, ENG subs)
Just hours after a talc mine collapses and buries coal miner Georg Hainzel under 60m of mud and debris, a rescue team of ten brave men make their way down to save him. But what they didn’t know was that water had entered the mine during the disaster, damaging the integrity of the walls. The tunnel crumbles and buries the troop. And thus, begins a race against time. Though nine days later Georg Hainzel is found alive and unharmed, there is still no sign of the squad. We reconstruct what happened during these fatal hours – a tragedy between misery and hope.
