extraction in Colombia, D.R.Congo and India. Focuses on different
realities, follows a tryptych concept: three countries, three illegally

to work in, made of mines, dust and fear. Characterized by
oppression, violence and trampled human rights: where the
presence of enormous deposits of minerals transform into a curse
for the people through the illegality caused by games of power
and corrupt economies.
