69 days in the mine is a extremely long time. A heart of the mountain blocked their only way. It was said to be impossible by the pathetic company that these 33 men were working for. Hope was dim but it gather the brotherhood of these men over and over again, trusts, an apology and the faith in god ;and that's the crucial that has kept them alive. Very touching film with great sense of laughter in occasion make this film wonderful to watch.
I appreciate the heart behind the sentiment, but this annoys the shit out of me. Let me just make a very short list of why this so-called “failure of progress” annoys me. Here it is: Fire engines. Ambulances. LifeFlight. The capsules, pods, equipment with drills and everything used to rescue Chilean miners did NOT arrive by freaking bike messenger.
'Life line', a stitched piece created by Sian Martin. Made for commission purposes, the used materials include multiple pieces of vellum, sewn together with thread, to celebrate the rescue of the Chilean miners in 2010, so it was probably made in the same year as this event.
