Boulmigou. The Forgotten Souls of a Death Quarry

A little girl plays with a rock while her mother crushes stone inside the Boulmigou Quarry -where more than 1500 women and children work-, with which she will obtain a profit of four cents of euro for each 15 kg bowl of crushed mineral. Unbearable heat, perennial illness, landslides... death.
