An exclusive screening of The 33 movie and a recreation of Camp Hope, where the miner’s families waited for the miracle to happen. Come and take a look of the exact replica of the capsule which helped the miners reach the surface alive, while enjoying live music from The Andes and tasting Chilean food and wine.
The 33 movie is based on the true story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped 69 days under 700 meters of rock by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of an old gold and copper mine. Outside their families and an international team worked 24/7 to see them alive and back home.
“The Devil was down there and so was God. I didn’t see either but felt them both. They were in a battle for our souls. And God won.” – Chilean miner Mario Sepulveda
