Salomé Lamas, Eldorado XXI, 2016, 125 min (Spanish, Quechua and Aymara with English subtitles)
Eldorado XXI is a haunting and mysterious ethnographic reality cut-up. Set in the highest settlement in the world in the Peruvian Andes, an illusion leads men to self-destruction, moved by the same interests, dealt with the same tools and means in contemporaneity as it has been dealt in the ancient times.

Not long ago Donna Haraway, author and prominent scholar in the field of science and technology studies, reminded us of the importance of the stories we tell to tell other stories. Walking, talking, minerals is a screening program whose films unfold from humans’ extractive practices to tie stories that accompany, evolve and result from these processes and contexts. Stories of how quartzite, sand or gold are entangled in a global machine that has been named progress, constantly shaping how cities, natural resources, labor or economic value are being assembled.
