Mined to Death

Working at an elevation of 16,000 feet, Quechua-speaking miners in Potosi, Bolivia, dig out zinc, tin, and silver much like their Incan ancestors did more than five centuries ago. This poignant documentary film, produced, directed, and film by Harrison, explores the lives and work of the miners as the veins of ore become increasingly depleted.
