Falling Mangoes (2004) Short Film
Watch the short documentary Falling Mangoes.
In Tanzania, nearly a third of all children under five suffer from malnutrition. Parents struggle to provide for their young children while working all day in fields. By age two, most are too heavy for their mothers to carry while working and are left alone to feed and care for themselves.
In Falling Mangoes, two-year-old Thomasi and six-year-old Rozi search the mango groves outside Dar es Salaam for fallen fruits during the coming and going of the harvest season.
