Underprivileged children to become filmmakers


Send to Friend
A group of underprivileged children will come together to narrate images of a world free of poverty and misery - thanks to a project that seeks to turn them into filmmakers.

Zonsta Creation and Entertainment Production Services are scouting for children living in the city's slums who want to relate their tales of pain and deprivation.

"The films made by the kids will be screened at a children's film festival in Europe in June. Some of the children will also get a chance to travel to Europe," said Zonsta's R.A. Mahiema.

The company has already short-listed a few children and is scouting for more.

"Some of these had run away from their homes due to child abuse or alcoholic fathers and have settled on Mumbai's streets," she said.

"We have got them excited to work on their respective stories and make their own films," she added.

The company is also working on a programme titled "Mys..tery history...a journey to create One World, Our World" in an attempt to bring together people on a single platform of love, bonding and peace, through children of the World.

This series will be shot in 20 different countries, she added.

The first episode has been shot in Mauritius and is now ready to travel to Brazil to be showcased to a world community of broadcasters at the World Summit for Media for Children.
