Neus Màrmol, Catalan Director and Producer, is preparing a new documentary project about the world of the Colombian emerald, with an immersive look through the different aspects around a rich but very little-known industry, with a past that still casts a dark shadow in today’s reality. Powerful newcomers seem to threaten an already fragile eco-system where extreme wealth and poverty face each other daily.
Neus’ interest in the project started two years ago and lead to an investigative research with Àlex Rodal. Afterwards, Neus travelled to Colombia twice for a two-month shoot in the mining area of Boyacá, Colombia, with the camera assistance of Arianna Giménez and Santiago Sepúlveda.
Here’s the teaser for the upcoming project, which I cut, enjoy!
