born into brothels

i've been renting movies from the library. born into brothels is a movie i've been meaning to see for a long time now. it certainly deserved the academy award it won in 2005. it was beautiful to see these kids' faces light up as they begin to see the world around them in different ways and tell their own story. as the express their thoughts on the pictures they took, it occurred to me that this was probably the first time they were able to express their thoughts and opinions and be listened to, and probably the only place that it happened. it is amazing to see how intertwined these lives become.

Yes, probably the most important movie of that year. Did you watch the "Where are they now" feature on the dvd? Very powerful too.

Yeh, it's beautiful to see them given both the gift of childhood and respect for what they can see through their own eyes. Love you, Aud... sara
