Africa has a prolonged history of uranium mining due to its colonial legacy. Today the uranium industry claims to instead provide jobs for the poorest people on earth. But is this the truth?
This documentary dives into the perspective of the tiny village Falea in Mali, which has a substantial uranium concentration in the ground.
Shri Prakash writes:
Unfortunately I was not able to arrange resources for further edit of the film and to buy the right of music. Also I am not happy with the structure of the film so I am still trying to reedit the film. And try to get some money to make French version of the film.
