BOLIVIA , Qatar | 80 minutes | 2016

Mesmerizing aesthetics and a fragmented narrative plunge viewers into the daily life of mine workers in this first feature from the Bolivian director. When his father dies, the feckless Elder Mamani has no choice but to live with his grandmother and become a worker. A strikingly atmospheric docu-fiction that, in its recreation of the mine, delivers a dark, disconcertingly claustrophobic experience.
