Born into Brothels

The winner of this year’s Best Documentary Oscar, this film is a tribute to the resilience of childhood and the restorative power of art: Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes.
