The 33

A film by Patricia Riggen

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, 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, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up.


Based on the gripping true story of survival, The 33 reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon.


The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche and Gabriel Byrne.


The 33 was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama Desert just kilometres away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia.
