With a minimum budget, Armendáriz films a choral portrait in 1980 of the last coalmen of the Navarra mountains who, still faithful to the old tradition, make charcoal like their ancestors did. Four people were the whole crew in Carboneros de Navarra. Nevertheless, the editing, the finesse of the cinematography and the austerity and perfection of the sound place this work it among the most intense Spanish documentaries.
