Reveka. Into the darkness of a mine in Bolivia
500 years after the first Spanish settlers did it, the Cerro Rico mine is still being mined.
Reveka follows four Bolivian miners who leave the beautiful Andes every day to work in the dark and lonely mine, a place with a lot of history and riddled with ghosts.
A sensuous film about the fears, dreams and superstitions that colour the miners’ daily lives.
