Hell to Pay
England, 1988, 52 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99117
A moving and politically sophisticated analysis of the international debt situation through the eyes of the women of Bolivia, the poorest country in Latin America. Although most directly affected by government austerity programs, peasant women are assumed not to understand the workings of international capital and foreign policy. HELL TO PAY poignantly contradicts such assumptions as teachers, textile workers and miners’ wives speak vividly and with great comprehension of the causes of the debt crisis and the burden they are forced to bear.


    “An unqualified gem. It tackles the complex issue of the inter-national debt and makes it not only understandable, but very real….The video is powerful and its effects linger on after it ends.”
