Lal Beguni Lal Shwapno

This project was a colloboration between Rainbow Collective, Openvizor, Paraa and Leedo Street Child Shelter.  

 

A stunning series of shorts explore the sorrows, joys, dramas and everyday lives of Bangladesh's homeless youth in a revolutionary film project written, directed shot and performed by the children of the Leedo Street Children's Shelter in Dhaka Bangladesh with Openvizor and Paraa. 

 

Screened at the Barbican in London and the National Museum in Dhaka in 2015 as well as at numerous conferences and symposiums, the films have not only offered the world a unique and authentic window into the lives of Dhaka's homeless youth, but are, in themselves, beautiful, powerful, subtle and deeply moving works of art.
