Child labor in Mexico

Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography, similar to our Census Bureau, published results on the country’s child labor practices through 2009. Despite a decrease of 17%, the report shows nearly 3.0Million children between the ages of 5 through 17 are in the workforce, as reported in July.

Eugenio Polgovsky's THE INHERITORS, currently screening at the Anthology Film Archives in NYC, immerses us in the daily lives of these children who, with their families, survive only by their unrelenting labor.
