A hypnotic train journey through Peru. We descend from the Andes mines at 4,800 metres altitude to the Pacific Ocean with the neo-colonialist exploitation as a backdrop.
A mesmerising train journey through Peru follows the route of the Central Andean Railway, built in 1870 and with the steepest gradient in the world. We descend from the Andes mines at 4,800 metres altitude to the Pacific Ocean against the backdrop of neo-colonialist exploitation. The train ride shows the paradox of a country rich in natural resources that sees high-value raw materials disappearing on cargo ships on the horizon. A portrait of Peruvian society through the various chance encounters during the train's incredible descent. A train movie with breathtaking scenery.
