- About the festival
On the afternoon of 5 August 2010, dozens of workers were inside the Chilean San José gold and copper mine. Everything seemed to be normal until suddenly the space collapsed, trapping 33 men inside.
When they managed to reach the rescue chamber, they discovered that nothing of what should guarantee their lives (ladders, food, medicine) was there, and from that moment on, a true battle of survival and desperately holding onto hope began 700 metres underground, lasting two whole months.
In the meantime, outside, the families of The 33 began a public battle to push the government into a mission to rescue their loved ones.
