“I think the thing that makes Journey to the End of Coal stand out is that this was the first time that this type of production was released on a mainstream press website, … Suddenly this interactive investigation found an audience that was looking for journalistic investigation.”

Samuel Bollendorff, Author, in the World Press Photo Academy

Placing its audience in the perspective of an investigator looking into the deaths of Chinese coal miners, Journey to the End of Coal has a first-person, choose-your-own-adventure format, drawing on techniques from video game platforms. An audience member’s choices affect the story as he or she travels deeper into the world of Chinese coal mining. A rich array of documentary multimedia—video, photographs, interviews—fills out the experience.

Produced by French production company HonkyTonk Films, Journey to the End of Coal premiered as a digital feature on the Le Monde website before screening at film festivals worldwide.
