Donde los niños no sueñan

Production: Indipendente
Country: Italy
Year: 2022
Duration: 20'
Directed by: Stefano Sbrulli

This reportage by Italian visual artist Stefano Brulli explores the issues associated with the extraction of mineral resources in Peru. Lourdes and her family live a few meters from a large lead mine in Cerro de Pasco, the self-proclaimed ‘mining capital’ of Peru, a city that has been dealing with historic pollution from mining for years.

Lourdes’ children suffer from serious health problems caused by heavy metal pollution, with consequences on their life expectations. The urge to take them away from that area that is killing them clashes with the social and economic impossibility of imagining a future anywhere else.
