One of the child characters in Ross Kaufmann and Zana Briski’s 2004 documentary, Born Into Brothels, is now attending film school in the United States. A fund set up by the filmmakers to help the children of prostitutes, who were the subject of their Oscar-winning film, enabled 20-year-old Avijit Halder to follow his educational dreams to the United States. He plans to return to India and make a film about one of the other children who was in the film, a girl who has since become a prostitute.
