A mineral reminiscence. Two brothers relive their past as miners through a film that tries to fathom the essence of a chemical element while concealing many mysteries. Between 1986 and 1989, the town of Bondons in the department of Lozere suffered major changes in the landscape because of the mining of several thousand tons of uranium shale. 


Laura Morales (1990) is a photographer and film student at HEAD Genève’s Cinema Du Réel department. Since graduating in 2011 with a degree in photography from the School of Applied Arts in Vevey, she has worked in various fields of photography.
