The Menace of Land Mines
Director: Ingrid Kasper
Producer: United Nations
(14 minutes) U.S.A.
Land mines are a terrible legacy of war. In
more than 60 countries, over 110 million land mines await the footfall of
an innocent child, the hoe of a farmer, the tread of an unwary citizen.
With its images of farm lands, riddled with mines, lying fallow, and
many facing starvation, this
documentary presents the economic and psychological havoc land mines can
wreak. It also gives a glimpse of
difficult work involved to remove the mines.
bio: Ingrid Kasper is a German-
based documentarist, dealing with issues of
women's health, conservation and drug prevention.
