INVISIBLE HANDS

Director:
Shraysi Tandon

Premiere:
Kansas 2017

Select Festivals:

About:
An investigation into the continued exploitation of child labor around the world.

Covering similar terrain as the higher-profile THE PRICE OF FREE, and relying heavily on that film’s main subject, Kailash Satyarthi, Tandon’s project is more far-ranging, providing a survey of child slavery practices across multiple countries and industries. At the same time, its decidedly more journalistic approach, with a preponderance of talking heads and dispassionate narration, imparts a television feel that limits its effectiveness. Still, Tandon’s well-intentioned if non-cinematic project does offer viewers direct access to exploited children, even if these are through a series of very brief interviews, and takes corporations to task who turn a blind eye to children being used in the supply chain of their products.
