Born into Brothels

Metropolitan State University Library, Ecolab Room, 645 E. Seventh Street, St. Paul


This film, 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, the film is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes.


Emily Good, Director of the Refugee and Immigrant Program at The Advocates, will lead a discussion following the film. This program is presented by The Advocates for Human Rights and The Friends of the St. Paul Public library and is cosponsored by Metropolitan State University’s Social Science Department and Students for Social Change.
