L'Eldorado di ghiaccio

The ice Eldorado
by Adriano Zecca Documentary Svizzera 2000 28'


x "A gold swollen glacier at a height of 5,400 mt., a crowd of desperate people willing to risk their lives and accept subhuman conditions to get few bits of that huge treasure, working without a contract, safety measures and very often any sort of remuneration for weeks. This is the unbelievable reality of Riconada, the highest shantytown in the world: about 30,000 people living a ghastly life among the Ananea glaciers in the Peruvian Andes. Here the dream of a wealthy future helps them to bear the present nightmare, here hope and predicament have one and the same colour: gold." (Adriano Zecca)<%YOUTUBE=JyFPF9ucJjw%>
