Director Skye Fitzgerald discusses his documentary Bombhunters and his work with his production company spinfilm.

In 1969, the US launched secret bombing raids into Cambodia in pursuit of the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war. Until suspension as part of peace agreements in 1973, over one billion pounds of ordnance were dropped on Cambodia.

Over thirty years later, much of that deadly ordnance is still scattered unexploded across the Cambodian countryside, where it is "harvested" by enterprising - and desperate - people.

Bombhunters is their story.
