Critic Reviews for Born Into Brothels
Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman's Born Into Brothels is both sustained and ultimately sunk by its lofty intentions.
Briski doesn't merely document the children's milieu. Instead, she does something revolutionary: She empowers them to document it for themselves.
A devastating portrait of impoverished Calcutta children who are born into the sex trades, yet the film is also an inspiring document about human possibilities and the need to strive despite impossible odds.
One feels manipulated rather than enlightened.
A beautifully made essay on a filmmaker's efforts to teach the children of Calcutta's prostitutes the fine art of photography.
Audience Reviews for Born Into Brothels
Heartbreaking especially when you consider that the kids aren't saved. We need to put an end to this.
A story and a message that should be told as much as possible. My Mother tends to say, do whatever you want, but when a Hungry Human is standing infront of your Door no matter if he/she your foe, never send them away hungry. Feed them.
A hard watch but a story that needed to be told.
