Movie: Born Into Brothels (2002)

Born Into Brothels DVDThis film offers a glimpse into the lives of children in a Calcutta red-light district, and follows the filmmaker’s attempts to rescue some of them from it. The frustration she encountered when she attempted to film or photograph there led her to teach photography to some of the children, which provided a small doorway through which we can see in and they might escape. Sadly the doorway is not as wide as either of us would like it to be. Nonetheless, the glimpse is worth seeing, and the filmmaker’s efforts praiseworthy.
