Description

Easily one of the most astonishing and engaging cinematic works of the past decade, Children Underground is a profoundly intimate and heart-wrenching drama--an Academy Award(R) Nominee for Best Documentary Feature in 2001, and winner at nearly every major documentary film festival across the country. In a style that is altogether shocking, brutal, and deeply humanistic, filmmaker Eder Belzberg transports us to Bucharest, Romania, where we are introduced to a family of five homeless children, begging on the streets and living in subway tunnels, drug addicted, and painfully unaware of the cruel horrors of their soul-crushing existence. The images captured by Belzberg's unflinching lens are so powerful and captivating that the camera quickly vanishes from the viewers mind. What is left behind is a devastating portrait of human anguish and suffering more riveting and absorbing than anything ever before captured on screen.show more
