The Mine Kafon

My brother sent me this video last week and I have come back to it a few times since. The video is wonderful, but the story and ingenuity of Massoud Hassani’s Mine Kafon is touching and lasting. This little portrait captures Hassani’s inventive and low cost way to clear landmines in his homeland of Afghanistan… inspired by the homemade wind-powered toys from his youth.

[Directed by Callum Cooper. This is a semifinalist in the Focus Forward Filmmaker Competition and is in the running to become the Grand Prize Winner. You can vote for it at the end of the video.]
