In his critically acclaimed documentary film Ironeaters, filmmaker Shaheen Dill-Riaz follows poverty-stricken farmers who try to escape the annual famine that strikes their home in northern Bangladesh. They trade in their plows for a blowtorch and begin to work as ship- wreckers, risking their health and their lives for a pittance.
