When the stomach is empty

The social distance is not something new in United States of America. One of the richest economies in the world, the hunger is hard to hide. This documentary is fifty years old, in those moment it already was showing to us at least two problems: extreme poverty and malnutrition. Here we have a few anthropometric indicators on nutrition and aspects of gender and race. Maybe it can give to us an opportunity to see the problem about hunger and its dimensions.
