Robert Müllers Documentary KÖHLERNÄCHTE celebrated its world premiere at DOK Leipzig. We are pleased that the charcoal burners will also be part of the Solothurn Film Festival.

The traditional charcoal production of Bramboden is unique in Europe. The steaming charcoal pile, the work with fire, covertly processes, a seeming alchemical transformation from wood to charcoal – there's definitely something magic about this craft. Over the past five years a film which shows the world of charcoal burners from an internal perspective has been created. "Köhlernächte" is an authentic, intimate, at times quite amusing portrait of various actors. They drink, smoke and swear in a politically incorrect way – at the same time their respectful interaction with people and domestic resources like wood, fire and smoke is impressive.
