UK, 1958 (MIFF 1960, Programme 10)
Director: Stephen Peet
At the port of Pusan a clinic issues milk and clothing to some of the children of the million refugees who fill the city and surrounding hills . . This film made by the Save the Chilclen Fund with the help of the United Nations was shot in South Korea during November and December, 1958.
It is a memorable documentary, made on a shoe-string budget, and is a series of individual stories which are linked with material which stresses the appalling general conditions in that country. The deliberately unsensational presentation of the horrifying life of a city where six children are abandoned every day makes a profound impression; a production with urgency as well as compassion.
