Mitumba The Second - Hand Road

by Raffaele Brunetti Documentary Italia 2005 53'

The T-shirt of Felix, a 10-year-old German boy, winds up in an old clothes collection point, the starting place for a journey spanning two continents: donated, collected, bought and sold several times over, finally worn by Lucky, a 9-year-old boy who lives in a small Tanzanian village. In some African countries, used clothing ranks first in imported goods. In fact, 90% of the population wears second hand clothes, called "dead white men's clothes" because no one in Africa would throw away anything still good unless it came from a dead person. Deals, persons and places along the secret route trade routes of the used clothing business, a hidden road that reveals a surprising reality.<%YOUTUBE=eNgVZxlQ9ig%>
