    Susan - thanks for posting this. I've seen the documentary "Born Into Brothels" which is a wonderful inspiring true story that I found life-changing. It is done live with no editing. I would encourage anyone who loves photography to see this movie which I believe is still available at Blockbusters. These very poor and almost forgotten children were given cameras - their photography experience changed their lives and the lives of some of their families. They also received international awards for their photos - it's worth seeing just to view their work.

    I hope you don't mind that I'm posting the link to the trailor which is still available to view - this movie won a few Best Film Documentary including the Sundance Film Festival award

    Thanks again Susan - this gives me the incentive to watch this movie again - I purchased 2 or 3 copies and gave them away.
