Boring, but an interesting insight into Third World labor

Review: "These Hands"

The message is clear, but it is overly long and boring (Not to mention tiresome). Nothing but 55 minutes of actual footage of African women mining stones, trying to scrape by with enough money to feed their kids and put a roof over their heads; it takes a while for the message to become clear. This is however, a good ethnographic documentary film, but only limit it to classroom viewing, nothing to own on video/DVD or anything like that.
