Eisenfresser

Ironeaters
by Shaheen Dill-Riaz Documentary Germania/Germany 2007 85'

Driven by famine, two farmers, Kholil and Gadu, leave northern Bangladesh for the coast where they take on seasonal jobs dismantling the decommissioned ships of Western shipping companies. Though harsh and dangerous, the work is done by thousands of workers who often fall victim to conditions of slavery. Using a human, sensitive approach, Shaheen Dill-Riaz takes an up-close look of this human drama, revealing the relationship of exploitation and dependence between the rich and the developing countries. <%YOUTUBE=iu-ClQ0_IqQ%>
