Born into Brothels (DVD)

(Out of Print)

By Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman

Winner of the 2005 Academy Award for Best Documentary Film, Born into Brothels was produced and directed by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski. Zana Briski, a New York based photographer, gives each of these youngsters a camera and teaches them how to take pictures, simultaneously causing them to look at their world with new eyes. Their photographs are prisms into their souls, rather than anthropological curiosities, and a true testimony to the power of the indelible creative spirit.

The Born Into Brothels DVD includes Director's Commentary with Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski, Special Kids Video Commentary/ Selected scenes of the kids watching and commenting on the film, Reconnecting: An update of the Kids, 3 years later, Deleted scenes, and much more.
