The 33 - Official Trailer [HD]
 
02:33
The 33 - in theaters November 13th. http://the33movie.com https://www.facebook.com/the33movie --- From Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures comes the unforgettable true story of “The 33.” In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon. The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The main cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. Patricia Riggen directed “The 33” from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez, Alan Zhang and José Luis Escolar served as executive producers. The behind-the-scene creative team included cinematographer Checco Varese, production designer Marco Niro, editor Michael Tronick and Oscar-nominated costume designer Paco Delgado (“Les Misérables”). The Academy Award-winning team of Alex Henning and Ben Grossman (“Hugo”) supervised the visual effects. The score was composed by Oscar winner James Horner (“Titanic”). “The 33” was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama desert just kilometers away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia. A presentation of Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures, “The 33” is slated to open on November 13, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Inside the Miracle (2010): In 2010 the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped in a collapsed mine caught the imagination of people around the world.

With the trapped 33 likely to receive millions, the rest of the impoverished miners - who are now jobless - are likely to receive no compensation at all.

02:08
HEADLINE: Chile mine disaster exposes old family feuds CAPTION: The 33 Chilean miners have now been trapped underground for a full month, and they have to deal with their confinement for weeks, or perhaps months, until they can be rescued. The strain also has shaken the fault lines in their families above. (Sept. 5) Many families of the 33 trapped miners in Northern Chile live in this small mining town, called Copiapo. Like in families the world over, sometimes certain relationships can be difficult. Now those strains are starting to manifest themselves at the mine where the men are trapped, about a 45-minute drive through the Atacama desert. TRACK: While a fire warms their campsite, the icy feeling between Cristina Macias and her mother-in-law is as chilling as the desert nights. Both women are here to support the same man, Claudio Yanez, one of the trapped miners. But the women have never gotten along. And now they are fighting over who should get Yanez's salary and donations that have come from all over Chile. Cristina says she needs the money to support the couple's two daughters. She worries about her mother-in-law trying to get the donations, but says she won't get cheated. To handle such disputes, the local government has been forced to institute several measures. The miners were asked to send up a note designating who could get their $1,600 salary for August. Separate bank accounts have been set up for each miner, which no family member can touch. And social workers help settle disputes about which family members should get donations like food and household cleaners. Pamela Leiva, the head social worker at the camp, says settling disputes has required digging into the lives of the miners before the accident. And those those lives, just like lives the world over, can be complicated. There are brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers on both sides of a miner who don't get along, or who depended on his salary to survive. And of course, some miners have skeletons in their closets, which have been unexpectedly open. A few weeks ago one miner's wife and his lover were both keeping vigil at the camp. When the two realized they were both praying for the same man, they had a very public argument, and the wife tore down a poster with the miner's photo that the mistress had set up. Still, for all the difficulties, this tragedy has also brought families together. When it comes to their loved ones, everybody has the same hope that they will get out alive.

Welcome to ENGINEERING DISASTERS DOCUMENTARY - home of the best documentary films and documentary movies on structures, disasters, engineering, fails. Shortcuts in engineering design can lead to engineering disasters. Engineering is the science and technology used to meet the needs and demands of society.[1] These demands include buildings, aircraft, vessels, and computer software. In order to meet society’s demands, the creation of newer technology and infrastructure must be met efficiently and cost-effectively. To accomplish this, managers and engineers have to have a mutual approach to the specified demand at hand. This can lead to shortcuts in engineering design to reduce costs of construction and fabrication. Occasionally, these shortcuts can lead to unexpected design failures.

Relatives describe emotions as they awaited news of Chilean miners.

Copiapo, Chile (CNN) -- One month ago, the San Jose copper and gold mine in Chile caved in, trapping 33 miners far underground. For the next 17 days, their families had no idea whether they were alive or dead. Here in their words, some of the wives, fathers and daughters think back to the first moments after learning of the accident and their efforts to keep hope alive. Lila Ramirez, wife of Mario Gomez: "I felt a lot of rage and pain and I felt powerless. I knew this was an accident waiting to happen. "Mario asked the bosses to take measures so the miners didn't run the risk of getting buried. But they never listened. A lot of the miners said they had heard the mountain groaning. One said he didn't want to go down the mine that day, he was afraid. But the boss said to him either you go down or I have five other people who will go down. "I never doubted that I had a lot of faith they were all alive and that they were all together and that's how they found them. All together!"

HEADLINE: Chile miners mark 2 months trapped underground --------------------------------------- CAPTION: Families of the 33 miners trapped in Chile marked on Tuesday the end of the second month since the miners became trapped, a day after the country's president said they were "very close" to being rescued. (Oct. 5) ---------------------------------------- [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] Even though two months have passed since 33 miners became trapped at the San Jose mine in northern Chile, excitement is building for the families who are praying for their rescue. Chile's president said his government is getting closer to pulling the miners to safety -- and he hopes to see the rescue in-person before he makes an overseas trip to Europe in the middle of the month. This family member says it's been two months that we have been waiting for them. She says, we are hopeful that they will be brought out any moment now. When the miners were found alive in early August, the government initially predicted the miners would not be rescued until December. But the drilling has gone well enough to move the date ahead -- and just last week, the government predicted a late October rescue. Meanwhile -- Chile's Interior Minister objected to claims that politics would take priority over rescuing the men safely. Tuesday, he said the decision on when to start the operation has nothing to do with politics. The only criteria are the well being of the miners and their health, he said --- and what the technicians and professionals recommend.

01:43
HEADLINE: Major adjustment ahead for freed Chilean miners CAPTION: After more than two months underground, the 33 miners trapped in a Chilean mine may have trouble adjusting to life on the outside and the inevitable changes they face. (Oct. 13) Just hours after the rescue of 33 men trapped in a Chilean mine began, signs emerged that adjusting to life at the surface may not be easy. Being stuck underground for two months, and a first-of-a-kind rescue to free them, have converted the miners from men who toil in obscurity into limelight sensations. Some, like Claudio Yanez, appear to be embrace the attention. After being rescued, he arrived to a hospital in nearby Copiapo. Much like a rock star, he waved to onlookers and journalists. However, his mother, who was waiting outside, was already worried about the next chapter in his life. She said she just hoped he wouldn't waste his new fame on what she called "stupid things." Beyond rock star status, for some there will likely be real difficulty adjusting to normal life. That is already the case for 19-year-old Jimmy Sanchez, the youngest of the miners. Hours after being rescued, Dr. Guillermo Swett evaluated Sanchez at the hospital. Swett said Sanchez spoke little, and appeared to be have trouble coming to grips with all that had happened. To be sure, there are also indications that the experience underground fortified some of the miners in ways that go beyond money. Swett, the doctor, also evaluated Mario Sepulveda. He says Sepulveda told him about feeling the presence of the devil during the ordeal. According to the doctor, Sepulveda says he fought with the devil, and won. SIGN OUT, in Copiapo. Of course, these men didn't ask to be trapped in a mine, or sign themselves up for a part in an incredible survival story. Just like everything in life, how they adjust will likely be a mixed bag, with some doing well and others less than well. But no matter what the future holds, their lives have undoubtedly been changed forever. APTN STORY NUMBER: 661333 SHOTLIST CHILE POOL 12 October 2010 1.

A Miner Miracle: Five Years After the Chilean Rescue (2015)
 
42:14
Five years after the collapse of the San Jose gold and copper mine that trapped 33 miners for 69 days, CNN correspondent Rosa Flores travels to Chile to speak with three of the miners. She also speaks with the drillers who worked around the clock on their improbable and miraculous rescue. The hour-long CNN Special Report, A Miner Miracle: Five Years After the Chilean Rescue airs Tuesday, August 4, at 9pmET/PT on CNN and via CNNgo. Jorge Galleguillos can’t shake the tragedy from his mind. He was one of the 33 men trapped a half-mile beneath the hard rock of Chile’s Atacama Desert. He remembers praying to live while preparing to die. Finally, a small drill broke through to the men, allowing them to send an astounding message: ‘All 33 of us are alive.’ Their 69 days underground and their triumphant rescue stunned the world who watched it live on television. The men became globe-trotting celebrities with multiple movie and book offers; however, five years later, Galleguillos and most of the miners still live very humble and difficult lives. Many of the men battle demons and have trouble keeping steady work. And no one was ever held accountable for the collapse of the San Jose gold and copper mine. During the CNN Special Report, Flores interviews former Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, whose optimism for their rescue rallied a nation and the world. She also speaks with Jeff Hart, the drilling expert who successfully carved a tunnel through the earth and helped save the 33 courageous men.

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

HEADLINE: Tense final hours ahead for Chilean miners CAPTION: The tension is building for 33 trapped Chilean miners and their families. With all eyes on Chile's effort to make sure that all of the miners are soon lifted to safety, the miners' physical and mental health is being fastidiously monitored. (Oct. 10) In only a few days, rescuers will try to free 33 men who have been trapped in a Chilean mine for more than two months. As that moment approaches, the mood of families at the surface has shifted from euphoria to anxiousness. The euphoria came Saturday, when a drill was able to blast a hole that will be wide enough to pluck the men out. Now comes the waiting, while engineers and rescuers put the final touches on the operation to start sometime next week. For Fernando Carrizo, who has two nephews among the miners, that means trying not to imagine the worst. He says he turns on the television and hears about things that could go wrong. Trying to avoid such a scenario, engineers are reenforcing parts of the the hole. STANDUP By all accounts, the casing process is going smoothly. Mining Minister Laurence Goldbourne says three of 16 pieces of casing have already been put in place. With every piece, the rescue gets closer. Brandon Fisher, president of the company that owns the drill that broke through to the men, nicely sums up the general feeling about the rescue.

Chile Miners Rescue 21 Johnny Barrios Rojas Wife & mistress issues

http://www.facebook.com/NSOTD Miner Johnny Barrios Rojas, left, embraces his girlfriend Susana Valenzuela after being rescued from the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine. His wife of 28 years Marta Salinas is thought to have not known of the affair with his mistress Susana Valenzuela until the two women ran into each other amid the tents pitched by family members anxiously holding vigil - and a very public spat ensued. More: Who'll play Johnny Barrios and Susana Valenzuela in Chilean Miners: The Movie? Mr Barrios, the 21st miner to emerge from the collapsed mine after 69 days, had sent a letter requesting both women to greet him when he was rescued, writing he wished them both to be friends. But the 50-year-old looked around sheepishly as he emerged from the rescue tube that elevated him to the Earth's surface, peering through sunglasses as mining officials in red shirts applauded loudly. More still: More amazing rescues. Among them, smiling widely and waiting for him to notice her stood Ms Valenzuela. When he did not, the round-faced strawberry blonde walked around to face Mr Barrios and gave him a long kiss and hug, weeping into the shoulder of his jumpsuit as he whispered into her ear. Ms Salinas was nowhere to be seen. She said: 'I am happy because he made it, it's a miracle of God. But I'm not going to see the rescue. 'He asked me to but it turns out that he also asked the other lady, and I am a decent woman. Things are clear: it's her or me.' Mr Barrios' sister told the Daily Telegraph: 'Marta is angry. She feels humiliated and she has said she is not going to see him... so in the end it's Susana's arms he will run into.' Weeks earlier, Mr Barrios' wife had ripped down a poster of her husband put up by his mistress. Defiant, the mistress taped the poster back up, and beneath several poems and prayers she had dedicated to him, she signed it 'Your Wife'.

A police escort led a procession of honking trucks and vehicles carrying the new drill and equipment. Relatives of the trapped miners, who have been camping at the mine site for weeks, waved Chilean flags and ran to touch the second drill. The new machine was brought in to start drilling into a new path in a renewed effort to reach the miners. Andre Sougarret, the head of the rescue effort, told a news conference at the mine site that a third and more powerful drill is due to join the effort on Sunday as well. He said rescuers were working on a third alternative. "We are making all the necessary arrangements so that by September 18, we should have a third plan at hand. This one would be of a major impact and it would take longer to have it ready." Sougarret said the multi-pronged approach will speed up the process and avoid delays. The arrival of the new machinery brought new hope to relatives camping day and night outside the mine. The aunt of one miner called the newly arrived drill a "blessed, miraculous machine." Former Uruguayan rugby players who survived more than two months of isolation in the Andes after their plane crashed about 40 years ago are in Chile to support a group of miners trapped deep underground. Ramon Sabella said he and fellow plane-crash survivors Pedro Alcorta, Jose Inciarte, and Gustavo Servino are expected to visit the San Jose mine in the northern town of Copiapo on Saturday to deliver a message of hope and support from Uruguayan children. Authorities have said it may take up to four months to rescue them.

Westray Mine disaster - The Last Shift - the fifth estate
 
29:11
On May 9th 1992 an explosion ripped apart the Westray Coal Mine in Pictou County, Nova Scotia killing 26 miners. The Fifth Estate and the Journal co-produced this story about the tragedy. The mine was opened the year before despite misgivings that the geology of the area was unstable and prone to large volumes of methane gas. The Federal Government was reluctant help the private company starting the mine after numerous reports cited geological concerns. But after heavy lobbying the mine opened. From the beginning miners complained of safety issues, rock falls, high methane gas levels and large amounts of coal dust. The company's output and quality of coal were disappointing. Inspectors visited the mine 49 times. Critics claim inspectors didn't take the conditions seriously enough and that the company was negligent. Government officials say it's not at fault. But the miners say even if the mine were to reopen they would never go back.Linden MacIntyre hosts.

Worried families gather at collapsed coal mine for news of men trapped underground
 
03:21
The anxious friends and family of 34 trapped miners gathered outside Raspotocje mine in Bosnia on Friday, waiting for news on loved ones stuck half a kilometre (0.3 miles) underground. The union leader at the coal mine said two tunnels collapsed on Thursday evening following a gas explosion triggered by a minor earthquake that had hit the area near the town of Zenica. The miners are more than 500 metres (1,600 feet) underground, but are alive and have enough air and rescuers are hopeful the miners will be brought out soon, said the union leader. He said 22 other miners managed to leave the pit after the tunnels collapsed, although two were injured. Rescuers are working around the clock to reach the trapped miners and have another 20 metres (65 feet) to dig through, he said. This is the third incident in the same mine since the start of the year. A total of 16 miners were hurt in two previous gas explosions, the most recent less than four weeks ago. Anxious family members waited at the entrance to the mine for news on the rescue operation. They accused the management of poor response, particularly in initially claiming that only eight people were trapped inside the pit.

(applause) We committed ourselves to the standard of Nine for Nine, we're going to bring everybody up. And I tell you what - the medical assessment team, the drillers, the assemblers, the people that secured the site: Give yourselves a big hand here. (applause)" 10. Cutaway wide of site 11. SOUNDBITE (English) Mark Schweiker, Governor of State of Pennsylvania: "All the guys and the girls who've been cranking for 77 hours: I said to my kids, I'm never going to meet or never going to see a more engaged, determined, hardworking, successful group of people, teammates, American workers, Pennsylvanians. (applause)" 12. Pull out to wide shot STORYLINE: Rescue workers in the US state of Pennsylvania on Sunday pulled nine miners from a watery, 240-foot-deep (72-meter-deep) shaft where they had been trapped for three days. The rescue was a jubilant reward for an effort that had been fraught with one gut-wrenching setback after another. After three grim days of frantic drilling delayed by broken bits and busted seals, the rescuers broke through to the trapped men at 2216 local time (0315 GMT) on Saturday. The breakthrough allowed workers to drop a telephone line to the miners through a small air pipe. Then the word came from an unidentified, mud-caked rescue worker who shouted up from the pit near where they dropped the communication device: "They're all down there. They're waiting to come up. There's nine of them. We talked to them on the telephone." The first words from the miners were blunt. "What took you so long?" one of the miners asked, according to a rescuer. The Sipesville Fire Hall, where the families had been gathering, erupted in celebration. Families cried and hugged and many were in the street with hands in the air. Randy Fogle, 43, the first miner pulled from the 26-inch (66-centimeter) wide hole, was dropped onto a stretcher to the wild applause of rescuers. After that, miners were brought up in roughly 15-minute intervals. The miners needed little medical attention after the three-day ordeal. All nine men were all taken to hospitals, where they were to remain for 24 hours and where they would be reunited with their families, officials said. The miners became trapped in the flooded Quecreek Mine on Wednesday evening, when they inadvertently broke into an abandoned, water-filled mine that maps showed to be 300 feet (90 meters) away. As much as 60 (M) million gallons (227 (M) million liters) of water rushed into the shaft where they were working, and they were able to warn a second crew, which escaped. Reaching the men was sometimes painfully slow. Drilling a rescue shaft to the men, age 30 to 55, didn't begin until more than 20 hours after the accident, because workers had to wait for a drill rig to arrive from West Virginia.

Medium of flags STORYLINE The families of 33 Chilean miners trapped underground after a shaft collapsed at the San Jose mine in Copiapo marked the one month anniversary of their ordeal on Sunday. Chilean Mining Minister Laurence Golborne was at the mine to mark the occasion, and he read out the names of each of the miners, followed by cheers from the crowd of family members. Golborne said it was "a moment of great emotion, a moment for meditation; this is not a moment for celebration, it is a moment of hope so we can in the shortest period of time possible bring them back to the surface, reunite them with their families and be able to end this rescue operation." On August 5, a landslide at the gold and copper mine in the Atacama desert caused a tunnel to collapse and entombed the men more than 2,200 feet (67.6 metres) below ground. It took 17 days for rescuers to make their first contact with the miners and find out they were all alive and well. Families have been holding a vigil by camping out close to the mine, sending messages to their loved ones to keep their spirits up. On Saturday they managed to talk via a video link with their relatives below ground. A miner's sister, who is living at the camp, said "My feelings are the same since the first day, a sad feeling because they are down there and also a happy feeling because they are fighting to get them out. So while they are down there, we will be up here supporting them one way or another, giving them strength." Alberto Avalos, who has two relatives trapped, Florencio and Renan Avalos Silva, said that he couldn't imagine what they were going through.

Various of drilling machines working 4. Various of religious images set up on improvised altars 5. Mid of piece of paper reading (Spanish) "Thank you Virgin (Mary) for listening to us 6. Various of tents of relatives of miners STORYLINE: The 33 miners trapped deep underground thanked their rescuers on Tuesday and settled in for a long wait until a tunnel wide enough to pull them out can be carved through a half-mile of solid rock. Raising hopes further, a second bore hole punched into the chamber where the miners are entombed, and a third probe was nearing the spot on Tuesday. After parcelling out tiny bits of food and drinking water carved from the mine floor with a backhoe for 18 days, the miners were getting glucose and rehydration tablets to restore their digestive systems. Capsules carrying oxygen also were sent down through a six-inch (15 centimetre) bore hole to help the men survive the hot, stuffy, humid conditions in the lower reaches of the gold and copper mine. The bore holes also will be used to lower communication lines and to provide ventilation, the Chilean Mining Minister said. Meanwhile, the miners were sending up notes to their families in the same supply capsules on Tuesday, providing solace to people who have held vigil in the chilly Atacama desert since the August 5 collapse. Their ordeal, however, is far from over. Above ground, doctors and psychological experts are debating how to keep the miners sane during the estimated four months it will take to dig a tunnel large enough to get them out of the safety chamber 2,200 feet (670 meters) underground, where they have been buried since August 5. Rescuers sent down questionnaires on Monday to determine each man's condition, along with medicine and small microphones to enable them to speak with their families during their long wait. A rescue leader said officials are organising the families into small groups to keep their talks as orderly as possible. Meanwhile, an enormous machine with diamond-tipped drills capable of carving a 26-inch (66-centimetre) -wide tunnel through solid rock and boring at about 65 feet (20 meters) a day was on its way from central Chile to the mine, outside Copiapo in north-central Chile. The miners' relatives are suing and claim their loved ones were put at risk working in a mine known for unstable shafts and rock falls. Company executives have denied the accusations and say the lawsuits could force them into bankruptcy.

We hope that it will be successful, that there will be no accidents, that nothing goes wrong with the machines, and we are hoping and praying for a successful rescue." 22. Wide of Chilean flags at camp site STORYLINE: Families of the 33 miners trapped in Chile marked on Tuesday the end of the second month since the miners became trapped, a day after the country's president said they were "very close" to being rescued. Sebastian Pinera said that his government was getting closer to pulling the miners trapped in the San Jose mine to safety and hoped to be there in person to see the rescue before leaving on a trip to Europe. The announcement has given the families renewed hope that their ordeal, which started on the 5th of August when they went missing, will soon be over. "I hope everything goes well and that it (the rescue of miners) happens soon," said Lili Gomes, a family member of a trapped miner. Another family member of a trapped miner said they were waiting and praying for the rescue of the trapped miners, hoping that there will be no accident and nothing goes wrong with the machines. If the miners are released this month it will come considerably earlier than the initial predictions by Pinera, who said when they would be saved before Christmas when the miners were first found alive on 22 August. Meanwhile, Interior Minister of Chile Christian Barra objected to claims that politics would get in front of rescuing the men safely. "The decision on when to start the operation has nothing to do with politics. The only criteria are the well-being of the miners and their health; and the technical needs," added Barra. The Chilean government has assembled a team of hundreds to support them while three simultaneous drilling operations pound escape shafts through a half-mile of rock.
