Storyline

In July 2000, WHO (the World Health Organization) urgently appealed to the UN administration in Kosovo to close their three Roma (Gypsy) IDP (internally displaced peoples) camps in the Mitrovica area because they had been built on highly toxic wasteland. More than six years later, the UN has still not evacuated these camps, nor sought medical treatment for the life-threatening lead levels in the blood of those living there. The International Committee of the Red Cross, Amnesty International, Society for Threatened Peoples, Refugees International (and many other humanitarian organizations) have demanded in writing to the UN the immediate evacuation of these three camps. This film encourages the international community to intervene. Unable to return home or obtain refugee status in a third country, these Gypsies remain trapped on toxic land where every child conceived will suffer irreversible brain damage. Written by Daniel Lanctot (director)

Very good film
3 July 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

An excellent film that gives a voice not alone to the experts, who are varied, but also to the sufferers.

Shows how some of the menfolk don't even understand what is happening to their children.

The women outline their fears, and the film travels with them to Belgrade for the tests. We see the lead lines in the children.# The film shows it as it is, the housing, and the environment they keep themselves in.

Paul gives a clear and loud narration, that is easy both for native and new English speakers.
