‘Basque people consider ourselves indigenous, we have our own culture, language or cosmogony, our own gods, sports or dances and music. Our own way to communicate or understand life. Of course, Basque people is already involved in the globalization process, the urban culture is quite similar everywhere; but we still keep some traditions and old uses, though –fortunately- it is more a question of culture than an ethnical question.’

Cerro Rico in Potosí (Bolivia) is a lawless territory, characterised by brutal violence. The miners risk their lives every day, digging for silver and zinc in crumbling galleries. The ones that survive think they’re entitled to anything and everything. And that’s when they go on the hunt… for women. Minerita is the story of three women—Lucía (40), Ivone (16) and Abigail (17)—who work as night watchwomen or inside the mine, struggling to survive in an inhuman inferno. Their only weapon is their courage… and dynamite.
