This Week at the Movies... The 33

December 4, 2015
Traer Star-Clipper

Showing this weekend at the Traer Theatre is the new adventure movie 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 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. This feature has been rated PG-13 and will run for 128 minutes.
