In 1970 an avalanche erased the colonial town of Yungay. A bunch of survivors fought for its rebuilding, just a kilometer away. Now they struggle with their memories, daily life and the menace of Peru’s highest peak, Huascarán, which provides them with water while threatening to crush them again. The mountain, once sacred and now feared, speaks for itself. Those who still remember know they should pay attention. The ice breaks off, the earth trembles.
