Synopsis


Dismissed from the coal mine where he works, a young miner has no choice but to head for the most deadly pit of all.


As he toils in danger deep underground, his family face a day-to-day struggle of uncertainty and anxiety.


This exquisitely eloquent retelling of a story by the distinguished Chilean author Baldomero Lillo is played out in silence using simple white marionettes.


Its emotional and dramatic impact takes puppetry to new levels as Silencio Blanco (White Silence) confronts the black silence of Chile's mining history.
