Born into Brothels, by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski,
is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary
Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative
power of art, Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable
children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their
mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based
photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to
look at the world with new eyes.

The film, released by THINKFilm,
premiered theatrically at the Film Forum in New York City in December
2004. It has since opened in over one hundred theatres nationwide. It
premiered on HBO/Cinemax on Tuesday, August 16th, 2005.

The music soundtrack to the film is now available for order, and the film is also available on DVD. Please join our e-mail list to receive news of release dates.

The photographs taken by the children in Born into Brothels are available for purchase in the Kids’ Gallery, and as a signed limited-edition portfolio, or as a compilation in our companion book. 100% of proceeds from print sales go directly to support the children’s education.
