Skye Fitzgerald in Bombhunters


2006 NR

Filmmaker Skye Fitzgerald journeys to Cambodia to document how rural villagers risk their lives to locate landmines, mortar rounds and other unexploded ordnance to sell the scrap metal for cash. In addition to following one group of bomb hunters as they spend their days using crude instruments to dismantle a bomb, Fitzgerald also examines how global forces, such as rising steel prices, encourage bomb hunters to escalate their perilous activity.
