Born Into Brothels

Genre: Documentary; Director: Zana Briski, Ross Kauffman; Release Date Limited: 01/28/2005; Runtime (in minutes): 85; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: THINKFilm

It documents the lives of eight boys and girls in Calcutta who were born to prostitutes and have been raised with the expectation they’ll continue in that soul-killing trade. Unfortunately, the film angelicizes the children more than it illuminates them.
