Description

This film portrays several children who live in Calcutta's red light district, where their mothers work as prostitutes.  The children's fascination with a camera leads them to record the world through their own eyes and to realize their own talents and sense of worth. Filmmakers Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski illustrate how art and education can empower children to transform their lives.
