"They have moved a mountain in three years. "

Mineral reminiscence. Two brothers relive their past as miners through a film that tries to fathom the essence of a chemical element yet concealing many mysteries. The town of Bondons, in the department of Lozere, has suffered, between 1986 and 1989, major changes of its landscape in favor of the mining of several thousand of tons of uranium shale. Oscillating between reality and poetic, Blazing Mounts highlights the uncertain and invisible.
