Frames of Representation: Eldorado XXI + Q&A

26 Apr 2017

This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Salomé Lamas, hosted by Whitechapel Gallery Film Curator Gareth Evans.

La Rinconada y Cerro Lunar in the Peruvian Andes is the highest settlement in the world and the site of a gold mine. There in search of their fortune, people live in crowded dwellings, without even enough for subsistence farming. Miners work for months with no payment, and in exchange they are allowed to explore the mines for their own profit for just four hours every thirty days.

Eldorado XXI tells complex, bleak stories through a haunting, contemplative film form, which constantly demands an active audience. Questioning established documentary conventions, it blurs the line between reality and myth, renegotiating the relationship between the known and the unknown.
