Hang on a Minute/ No.8 Bus

Illicit mining trade in uranium from Namibia is allied to excessive profits for the mining company and low wages for the miners.

One of thirteen 1 minute films which grew out of a series of short poems written by Lis Rhodes, reflecting on the traditional patterns of oppression in women's lives (pornography, violence, nuclear weapons) and the many forms that resistance takes.

Made with the artist Jo Davis and commissioned by Channel 4 for television broadcast.
