A powerful documentary
30 November 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched this last night with my wife and we were captivated from start to finish. i had never heard of Frank Poulsen but after watching this did some research and he is obviously not new to the journalist world and documentaries.I had no idea that this mining and the corruption behind it was going on, and had he not used the tactics of the fact he was just wanting to make a film about how they were sending these people underground and getting these minerals, then i doubt if he would have gotten out of there alive. it seemed obvious that the fact he was making a movie seemed to excite some of those in charge with some even posing for the camera. If it had leaked out that he was in fact making an anti mining film, things would have been much worse. The facts found in this documentary, although disturbing is not going to see us all throwing away our beloved mobiles, and computers, but perhaps will make some think (as i do) why not give them aid and proper mining equipment to do the job safely.? They could still earn a good -if not better income using machines which would need operators and safer roads in and out would also generate work. The only problem is the dark side of the story where we have other forces taxing the miners of their minerals to buy arms for the bloody war that evolves around the whole process. Definitely worth viewing.
