Mine Kafon Project by Massoud Hassani

The Mine Kafon is a low-cost wind-powered mine detonator with the appearance of a giant spiky-armed tumbleweed.

Currently it is at a prototype stage and we are looking for support in order to turn it into a reality. If successful, we will be able to develop the prototype and test it in real minefields. Filmmaker Callum Cooper will also produce a documentary that will raise awareness on this global issue.

MINE KAFON is a Winner in the $200,000 FOCUS FORWARD Filmmaker Competition, and is vying for the $100,000 Grand Jury Prize, to be announced January 22 at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It has also been recognized as an Audience Favorite. Learn more about the Competition and FOCUS FORWARD at Continue reading »
