Mechanical Man

Cornwall celebrates a decade of World Heritage status of its tin mining industry and builds a giant mechanical puppet driven by steam and called the Man Engine.

The film interweaves between the puppet and the background of the tin mining industry and the families who lost loved ones in the mining disasters.
