Thousands of small-time miners are digging up and destroying the Peruvian Amazon. The police and army are after them. Environmentalists the world around condemn them. It’s a disaster and it’s only getting worse. But what do the miners themselves have to say?
Hear what they have to say – and see how they live and work – on an unprecedented journey into the illegal mines. Where crooks and killers toil alongside otherwise honest men in search of gold – and a way out of life-threatening poverty.
El Ministerio co-produced and co-directed it, along with Gerry Hadden, for CCTV America.
