    Dear Friends,

    You are invited to the World Premiere of Lal Beguni Shwapno, a short docu-film by six vulnerable children that have lived / living on the streets of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

    Bonna, Brishti, Farzana, Hasan, Jasmin and Tanya directed, shot and wrote their own short story along with peer interviews about their experiences.

    They were provided with basic film-making training by The Rainbow Collective, and support from Openvizor and the Paraa team. The project was completed over three days in November 2014 and involved training on using pen cameras, scripting and shooting on site. This was a challenge and a tremendous achievement considering the complexity and context of the project.

    The film is in two parts – the first, fictional stories that powerfully reflects life on the streets from their eyes, and the second consists of interviews of each other – as they narrate their personal stories.

    Three of the children continue the journey, and will host the premiering of the film at the EMK Centre. They are receiving further film-making training, as well as learning about the issues that affect the lives of other children from the legal organization, BLAST. They will be presenting their thoughts, as well as ideas going forward from problems they have identified in recent workshops in a panel discussion.
