Director: Justin Mills | Producer: Dev Tv
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: Switzerland
From the capital, Vientiane, it takes 10 hours for reporter Vasanthi Hariprakash to reach her square mile: a village next to the old Ho Chi Minh trail. Today it’s a peaceful highway for enterprising Vietnamese traders, but during the war it was a target for the B-52 bombers with their deadly cargo of cluster bombs. Forty percent are live, called UXOs, Unexploded Ordinance, and Hariprakash finds the villagers’ poverty leaves them no choice but to run the gauntlet of the unexploded munitions as they work in their paddy fields.
