Angola's Landmines [electronic resource]: The Seeds of the Devil

Journeyman Pictures (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Landmines are disabling approximately 200 people a week in Angola, with children being more vulnerable and less likely to survive an explosion. This film reveals the daily struggle against being killed or maimed in Angola's deadly minefields. Twelve-year-old Daniel lost his legs when his friend mistook a mine for a toy. Antonia cannot bear to use her cumbersome prosthesis, and so lives her life between the yard and her bedroom, swinging on her arms to get around. A peacetime army of mine clearers tries to clean the fields so people can get on with planting crops, but it's slow work - and for every bit of land that's cleared, somebody somewhere is laying another deadly mine.
