Rosia Montana's Life
Rosia Montana is a village in the north of Rumania, in the Transilvania’s area. It’s a extraordinary place because it’s situated in the middle of the Apuseni’s mountains, so it’s a green area with a lot of resources and surround by a forest. It’s one of the biggest mines of gold and silver of all Europe, but in this moment the Canadian company who manage the project don’t have licence to continuous the work here, so the inhabitants of Rosia Montana are unemployes. The situation here is very hard for them.
Jérôme Boulesteix, Saloua Baha and me, Henar Pérez, are working in the project "Reporters in Romania", so we do interviews about the legends, landscape and the life of the people here, and we try to show this moment of their life and the ancient situation here.
