nice documentary with great composition of harsh life of these poor people and their invisible bosses who sat on those bags behind him with nice golden colors and and details






Claudio Solera, 10.06.2007 at 0:52h

Un sorriso di speranza......grande Sergio. :-))


Anastasya Ivanova, 10.06.2007 at 5:20h

All that I want to say is their living condition is undoubtedly awfully terrible, however unfortunately it's the way exactly how the people, part of the people there in Bukinafaso manage to live themselves. There's nothing we can help for them, because there're too many of them and as a single person there is really nothing one can do.
Official assistance from other countries I see no practical effectiveness in helping them rid of this because of several reasons...mostly because there lacks in the most Afrikan countries a strong and good government capable of handling economical difficulties as well as improving the local poor infrastructures.

Giving a begger a coin wouldn't help them rid of being a begger in the future...if the begger wouldn't try to make good use of donated resources...this is the way I feel in long working in the related field.



Comy Kandilo, 10.06.2007 at 6:43h

Fabulous perspective captures the essence of this individual and his difficult and challenging task. There is a purity to his mood and expression that includes a level of carefree joy that is contagious to the viewer. What is his secret? Great job. PRO
