I read an article yesterday in the lunchroom at work about a newly released documentary that is seeking to record and change life for some kids in India.The film is called "Born into Brothels" and it is now at the top of my want to see list.
The story is about a New York photojournalist named Zana Briski and her journey into Calcutta's red light district where she is assigned to photograph the prostitutes that live there.
Moving into the brothels to get closer to the women, she finds herself surrounded by the children of these sex workers. It does not take long to notice that the children are fascinated by her camera and Zana in return becomes fascinated by the children. The documentary records her efforts to make a difference in their lives. Can't wait to see it!
