Len Morris and Robin Romano's painstaking 2004 investigation into modern child labor packs a wallop through its sheer volume of facts. It's nearly inconceivable that 246 million children worldwide toil long days under hazardous conditions, but a small army of experts and activists—including U.S. senator Tom Harkin and Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai—deliver harrowing eyewitness accounts of such enslavement. Positive solutions are illustrated in case studies of partnerships between governments, foundations, and communities to keep children in school, but hope also lies in the fair trade movement that monitors who's picking our coffee beans and weaving our Oriental carpets. 85 min.
