Storyline

A docudrama that takes the viewer in a poetic trip around the derelict mining industry on the south coast of Spain. Trough the years, the peculiar relationship of miners with the earth they penetrate and exploit has originated some very peculiar folk arts: a special type of flamenco chants (mineras), a style of improvised poetry (trovo)... The film follows a group of friends who gather on a bar to pay homage to one of them performing their trovos, then journey by train around the remains of the mining industry of the Sierra de Cartagena, while a grandfather, his son and grandson explore an abandoned mine, tangible. At the same time, a group of children play with earth. Written by Anonymous
