Abstract: At first sight this film may appear to be one that deals with the technical processes ofcharcoal making, but it is more than this. It is, among other things, an exposition of the discourses of men and women in Greek society on the nature and conceptualization of work. Dealing with a peripheral and low-status occupation (charcoal making) among a small, specialized group in Greek society, the film weaves together how changes in one Epirot village (a desire by the community to enlarge its cemetery), with economic activities many miles away in the restaurants of Athens and other tourist resorts, have a specific set of social implications.
