Kolkatta orphans' win awards for film-making

Armed with one lone handycam, these twenty-odd children—all orphans— have been making award-winning human rights films. With help from the Centre for Communication and Development (CCD), based at Madhyamgram near Kolkata, these children make a film for just between Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000.

The organisation was founded in 1979 to take care of children orphaned by the devastating floods of 1978.

Now, films made by these children have won prizes at the Chicago Film Festival and childrens’ international film festivals in Greece, Italy, Tehran, Cyprus and Sydney.
