Born into Brothels, winner of the 2005 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, is a heartbreaking and inspiring portrait of several unforgettable children who live in Calcutta’s red-light district, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Spurred by the kids’ fascination with her camera, Zana Briski, a photographer documenting life in the brothels, decides to teach them photography. As they begin to look at and record their world through new eyes, the kids awaken to their own talents and sense of worth. (Dir. by Zana Briski & Ross Kauffman, 2004, USA, in Bengali/English with English subtitles, 84 mins., Not Rated)
