    Default Born into Brothels

    An excellent film about a NY photographer Zana Briski who goes into the Red Light district of Calcutta aiming to photogrpahy life there. She gets caught up with the children of the RLD, gives each one a camera and they end up getting a World Press Photo Exhibition out of it. It's a touching and interesting movie, definitely worth a rent, if not even a buy, there are a few copies on Trademe.

    +1, really great, inspiring doco.

    In other photography related viewings, I finally got around to watching Restrepo, in which a journalist and photojournalist spend a year with a US platoon in Afghanistan, and it was fantastic. It was co-directed by conflict photographer tim Hetherington, who was killed earlier this year coving the Libyan civil war. On par with Born into Brothels I'd say, well recommended.

    I saw Restrepo last year in a very small independent cinema in Juneu, Alaska, I didn't know anything about Tim Hetherington at the time, now I obviously do. I would watch it again.
