75 Grams

Original title 75 Gramos


Filmed in Andacollo, in central Chile, the documentary retraces the work produced by a group of artisan miners. Going down to the depth of the mines is a very risky business that does not always pay back. But the local miners have faith in the Virgin of Andacollo to give them strength and “to carry on fighting” in the mines. The film brings a contrasting perspective to the dryness of the mining world to the miners’ sensitiveness.
