Made the soundtrack for a beautiful short documentary film by Karen Vazquez.
“Flor de Mil Colores” premiered in Sphinx Cinema Ghent (B), won the “Best Belgian Student Short” prize at Film Fest Gent and is selected for Sundance Film Festival
Flor de Mil Colores is an intimistic portrait of Emiliana, a mother struggling to survive in a remote Bolivian mining camp 4896 meters above sea level. Life in Mina Argentina revolves around the exploitation of tin. Those who find ore, eat; those who don’t, don’t eat. The landscape, however, is like a magical painting, with the grey of the mountains running into the blue sky, while the miners march towards the darkness below and watch the drifting clouds. The film portrays a mother’s everyday struggle with her inhospitable dark surroundings to provide for her children.
