Sewickley Documentary Film Series 
Born into Brothels, by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski, is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative power of art, Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes.
