Experiencing Interruptions?

On the kids skin

With the footage shot over several years in nine southern countries of the world, the documentary shows the live of children forced to work early in dangerous activities, underlying the worst forms of child exploitation. So we will know the small workers in the factory of India and Benin, the gold seekers in the Bolivia and Ecuador mines, the breaks stones in Peru, the street children in Brazil, the trash collectors in Guatemala , the salt workers in Cambodia, the prostitution in the streets of Manila. They are stories of poverty, of children and girls who do not know the childhood; small existences to which everything is denied, sometimes even life.
