First Chilean-Miner Movie Arrives

Well, that was fast! The first movie about the Chilean miners, Antonio Recio's The 33 of San Jose, is completed and looking for distribution. The movie started filming just five days after the miners were safely rescued. It stars 32 Chileans and a Bolivian, was shot in part on location near where the miners were trapped, and will use real news footage. All those people hard at work on similar projects, take heart: First doesn't necessarily mean best ... but maybe think about hurrying up? [THR]
