SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being • 27m
Life and survival is incredibly difficult in the bleak Cerro Rico mining district in Potosi, Bolivia. This is true for the men risking their lives going down into the mine shafts looking for silver ore, but especially so for the women, who are viewed by the men as fair game.
This powerful and breathtaking documentary introduces us to three women: Lucia (40), Ivonne (16) and Abigail (17). They talk about their daily lives, in which they are constantly dealing with violence, much of it sexual. In an area where not even weeds can grow, these tough and vulnerable women survive with a mix of courage and dynamite.
