Hector Tobar, Deep Down Dark (Episode #509)

KQED World: Fri, Nov 6, 2015 -- 4:00 AM

In August 2010 the world was captivated by the story of 33 miners trapped underground for weeks after a disastrous mining accident. After the disaster, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hector Tobar received exclusive access to the miners and their tales, and in Deep Down Dark, he brings them to haunting, visceral life. We learn what it was like to be imprisoned inside a mountain, understand the horror of being slowly consumed by hunger, and experience the awe of working in such a place-one filled with danger and that often felt alive. Our interview airs one week before the world premiere of the movie with the same name.
