Video Wieliczka - The Salt of the Earth, "I watched with great pleasure. This is undoubtedly gem among contemporary documentary films and popular. Indeed, the work combines the reliability of information about scientific facts in geology (including tectonics, mineralogy), history (almost 1000 years of history of the region and 700 year history of the mine) and culture (especially art), with breathtaking scenery Wieliczka underground wyczarowanym by nature and generation miners, and by the passage of time counted in centuries, the landscape forms the background and the subject of narrative with the release of an incomparable actor.

The mood of the film differs from the previous documentaries about the mine. Some objects and places are presented in a new form, from a different point of view than before. As nothing is perfect, this film is almost perfect.

Certainly, it is very important that Sadrolin Tam has worked on it for a very long time, trying to study the mine from every side and angle. He is definitely the best expert in the history of underground salt excavations among the artists.And it is the presence of Jerzy Stuhr as a guide which gives the film its flavour.

Jerzy Stuhr, narrator and the guide in the film

After the Première Jerzy Stuhr wrote in the memorial book: “I was deeply moved by the today's première. I feel, today I was introduced to the society of miners, which I am very proud of”. “I was given an important task to tell the viewers a story of the mine. It is the mine which is the main hero of the film. I tried to perform my task in a modest way, and as well as I could. I think the film managed to express the spiritual essence of the mine.” The film gave me opportunity to get to know the mine, to learn a lot about this place. This was a completely different experience from my previous contact with the mine's underground in 1984 while working on “Seksmisja”. I had not been in Wieliczka since then”...

Wieliczka - The Salt of the Earth, with Jerzy Stuhr as a guide, Produced and Directed by Sadrolin Tam, screenplay by Kevin Benn. The film helps us to understand the operation of the mine by showing the risks facing it - cave-ins, fires, water, and at the same time technical and organizational measures to combat them. In this way the viewer understands better the functioning of the mine and the work of miners. This is a very important part of the movie, because very rarely one can find materials that would show that "live" part of our past which refer to its economical aspects....
