India's Forgotten Children
India’s Forgotten Children exposes widespread trafficking, persecution, and oppression among the children and young people of India’s 300 million strong Dalit community. Meticulously researched, this documentary portrays the everyday lives of these forgotten children of India, whose painful predicament rarely reaches the headlines. Filmed in village communities around the centers of Bengaluru, Lucknow, and Hyderabad, and with the help of Dalit children interviewed in their daily life situations, the charting of these disturbing stories is vividly portrayed. With expert analysis from Indian commentators and human rights advocates, the film also reveals how a small but steady light of hope is emerging.
Running time for the full-length program is 58 minutes. The DVD also includes a 30-minute version and a 90-second trailer. The selection menu enables sections to be played independently as a taster for the main film, or for small groups, study, or discussion purposes.
