STOLLEN is an intimate portrait of the Erzgebirge, a mountainous region in eastern Germany, forever shaped by centuries of mining. 30 years since the closing of the last uranium mines, its people discuss their uncertain future as the character of their home oscillates between old traditions and a new fassade as a Christmas Wonderland.
