Mine Kafon | Callum Cooper from Focus Forward Films on Vimeo.

This short film directed by Callum Cooper tells the story of Mine Kafon – a wind-driven, low cost landmine destroyer developed by Afghan designer Massoud Hassani.
The device, consisting of rubber pads on the end of a radiating array of bamboo rods, costs $40 to manufacture and can sustain up to four landmine blasts. As opposed to current ‘hi-tech’ mine-sweeping which can cost up to $1000 per explosion.
