Chilean Film at Owatonna Library for Indie World Film Series


Indie and World Films at the Owatonna Public Library presented a 2015 English-language Chilean drama based on true events.

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions – and time – were quickly running out.

Based on real-life events, this film is an inspirational drama about survival and heroism.
