Since the San Jose copper-gold mine collapsed way back on the 5th of August, the story of the 33 miners trapped half a mile underground in northern Chile has become an international media sensation. One classic, seldom seen film has proven to be all too prophetic during this disaster – Billy Wilder’s ‘Ace in the Hole’.
Prolonged, and as yet unsuccessful, rescue efforts to drill escape tunnels at the San Jose site has served up daily doses of dramatic and heartwrenching news articles. In a time when newspaper circulations are nose-diving and journalists struggle to justify spending time and money working in the field, this continuing real life saga is a reporter’s dream.
