music for documentary film

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.
