At the end of November, at the Gvardeyskaya mine of the Kryvyi Rih Iron Ore Combine, the Austrian film company Horse & Fruits began filming the documentary Ukrainian-Austrian film "Before I Die" (Before I Die). About this told in the press service of KZhRK.
Main the hero of the tape is Ivan Grigorievich Paliy, a native of the village of Nedayvoda, 1939, a former employee of the enterprise. It was with the Komsomolskaya Pravda mine (the current territory of the Gvardeyskaya) that his youth was connected. He worked in several working professions, the first of which was a mining worker delivering lumber to the face. His family also devoted their lives to mining: his grandfather and father worked at the mines of Kryvbas.
The plot of the film is that the main character goes on a journey across Europe to look for the grave of his father Grigory Demianovich Paliy, who was captured during the Second World War and did not return home.
A film crew consisting of director Yuri Rechinsky, cameraman Angelica Spangel, sound engineer Maria Nesterenko and Paliy himself descended into the mine. First, the guests listened to the briefing by the chief labor safety inspector Sergei Legedzovsky, talked about the specifics of mining with the director of the mine, Maksim Grinenko.
After descending into the mine to the horizon of 1350 meters, the filmmakers saw the tipper intended for unloading the mine cars in operation, visited the underground first-aid post, watched as laboratory technicians-radiometricians take ore samples. Having risen to the surface, they removed the transitional gallery leading from the cage to the administrative complex.
This film is the last journey of Ivan Grigorievich to important places that were key to the development and formation of his family. According to director Yuri Rechinsky, the mining industry of Krivoy Rog is an important element in the film, showing how life goes in an industrial area. The last will be the location of the mass grave in France, where the father of the protagonist is buried.
