Dwellings And The Past El Dorado Xxi says
Whatever you thought an ethnographic film could be, a viewing of ElDorado XXI’s take on the genre will leave very few preconceptions unscathed. Director Salomé Lamas invites us to descend into the cavernous bowels of a Peruvian mountain teeming with miners toiling away in the hopes of earning a modest income, only allowing us to emerge, gasping for air, once the film suddenly shifts in the second half to the lives lead on the country’s surface. ElDorado XXI goes beyond asking for empathy and stirring consciousness, creating an altogether new bodily experience.

Winner of the Pancevo Film Festival’s 2016 ‘Lighthouse Award’ for Best Feature Film.
