Thân in the Invisible War

Haut de la page

The slightest touch is all it takes to explode one of the million deadly land mines that lurk in the fields and riverbanks of Cambodia. Thân Khy was pregnant with her fifth child when she stepped on a mine buried just a few feet from her home. Miraculously, she and her daughter, now a year old, survived the blast. But, like 35,000 of her compatriots, Thân lost a limb. Some 30,000 others have lost their lives. Land mines are not only destroying lives by the thousands but devastating Cambodia's economy. Large-scale agricultural activity cannot be revived without first demining arable land. This powerful documentary demonstrates the need for international laws to better protect innocent civilians.
