In Burkina Faso, in the gold-digging site of Bantara, Rasmané, 16 years old, descends more than 100 metres deep in artisanal mines to extract gold. Anxious about accidents, Rasmané makes his way in this world of fierce adults in the hope of one day becoming emancipated.

This is a peaceful, beautiful film that allows space to consider both the micro work of Rasmané and his friends, but also the macro world of global finance and resource extraction.

“The special thing about this documentary is the total lack of any sense of voyeurism. The camera seems to be completely absorbed within the society. It observes without judgment and pursues no effect.” Business Doc Europe
