Up At Dawn: The Working Children of Egypt (2001)

2001. 50 minutes. Egypt. John Zada and David Rountree. Documentary

This documentary, an attempt to investigate child labor in Egypt, shows children as young as seven and eight working in carpet factories, crafts workshops, printing plants and in agriculture, tilling the fields for long hours. Up At Dawn brings up cultural differences that become apparent when the industrialized West tries to impose values on a developing country like Egypt which has difficulty admitting its own social problems to an international audience.
