The movie, Bomb Harvest, is currently playing on ABC TV. It’s an excellent film and anyone with a remote interest in Laos should watch it. The movie’s accompanying website is very good.

From a review by “At the movies” on ABC TV:

During the ‘Secret War’ that the Americans conducted in South East Asia during the conflict in Vietnam, nearly 2 million tonnes of bombs were dropped on neighbouring Laos.

Many of those bombs failed to explode and are embedded in the landscape. A new documentary BOMB HARVEST follows Australian bomb disposal specialist Laith Stevens in his work for the humanitarian organization Mines Advisory Group.

You can watch a video of the film on Google Video.
