What are the costs of economic progress? Behemoth travels through Inner Mongolia to show the answer in unflinching detail: hillsides blasted for mining; the blistered hands and diseased lungs of the miners forced to do this work to survive. Following the trajectory of Dante’s Divine Comedy, the film reveals the stunning, and ruinous, effects of unbridled greed on a nation’s land and people.
