Cote de Pablo – “The 33” say their last goodbye to Chile

The cast and crew of “The 33,” a film about the dramatic 2010 rescue of 33 men from a mine in northern Chile, said goodbye to the Andean nation as the phase of postproduction in Canada begins.

“It’s been a great experience and we think we have a great film,” producer Edward McGurn said in a statement to the press.

The movie, directed by Mexico’s Patricia Riggen (“The Same Moon”), tells the story of the mining accident that in 2010 kept the whole world in suspense: 33 miners were buried for almost 70 days by a cave-in down the San Jose Mine in the northern part of the country.

After a salt mine in Colombia was used to shoot scenes of the collapsed Chilean mineshaft, the cast, headed by Antonio Banderas in the role of the miners’ leader Mario Sepulveda, went to the arid north of this long, narrow country to shoot the outdoor scenes.

Actors like Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, Kate del Castillo, Federico Luppi and Mario Casas recreated in Copiapo, in the northern Chilean region of Atacama, what happened at Esperanza Camp, where a colorful, chaotic and at times solemn human landscape became engraved in the world’s memory.

The film is due for release at the end of this year. EFE

Young(ish)

As you know, Reneé did a shortfilm called Young(ish). She directed, produced, wrote and designed the costumes. Well done Reneé 🙂 More about the film, check it out the following infos.

 

During an afternoon at the beach, an elderly couple transports back to their childhood through the help of a playground pirate ship. When their adult children come to collect them, the cyclical nature of life is exposed.

In early 2012, I became interested in the passage of time, specifically in relation to human life. I thought of my aging grandparents; their ideas alive, their physical bodies, failing. I watched as they would make one another laugh while discussing the installation of an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator into one’s body; I marveled their ability to access inner light, the “child inside”. This was the inspiration for young(ish). Our youth remains; the challenge comes in allowing ourselves to find it.

While our physical life may end, our spirit is infinitely eternal.
