NR 2009 | Drama
High in the majestic Andes of Peru, silent but deadly traces of mercury, remnants of long-ago silver mining, bring illness and death to a local village. Seeking retribution, the villagers mistakenly attribute the outbreak to Western doctors who work in the nearbly mountains; violence ensues, and a doctor is killed. Altiplano is the story of two women: Saturnina, the fiancee of a villager killed by mercury poisoning, and Grace, a shell-shocked war photographer who is also the wife of the dead doctor. As their destinies merge, this lyrical and probing film explores our divided but inextricably linked world.
