Born into Brothels

In 2005 Born into Brothels won the Academy Award for Best Documentary. The film tells the story of eight children, growing up in Calcutta’s Red Light District. The filmmakers gave the children cameras and taught them how to take photos in order to document their lives and bring attention to the plight of prostitutes and trafficked women in India.  The children are, of course, a delight. Heartbreakingly beautiful. Given the Pope’s recent comments about human trafficking being one of the greatest human right’s issues of our day, we highly recommend this film. Watch the trailer here:
