The 33 is a simple sotry. It involves 33 mines trapped underground. This film is their story. Sort of. Not only do the miners have to cope with being trapped but there is hope. This hope comes from their families and their fight against the mine owners and the government. It is as much their story as it is the trapped men.
It’s a story of a fight for life as well as a fight for rescue. With this great featurette, the story is talked about. Not only that but the struggle that their families had to go through. With interviews with the cast and crew. It brings their struggle to life.
In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the collapse of a gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked tirelessly in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people they had never even met, waited anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, exploring the private lives and psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of those who refused to give up.
