Video: Arte - New York Minute – Lost Generation // Episode 5

Staten Island, home of 8,000 Liberian immigrants,
might have the largest concentration of child soldiers in North America. US citizens used to see these kids on CNN -carrying a Teddy bear in one hand and an AK-47 in the other- during the Liberian civil war.
Ten years later, they observe this lost generation out their window.
This story has no heroes, only survivors.

Great series. Plus the fact that this is also HipHop, in the way of approaching this whole thing, makes you forget about all that other bullshit in HipHop generaly.
