SnagFilms: Children Underground [2001]…


Date: July 27, 2017

01) Children Underground

“Edet Belzberg’s Academy Award-nominated directorial debut, CHILDREN UNDERGROUND follows a group of homeless children living in a train station in Bucharest, Romania. Raw and insightful, this acclaimed documentary personalizes the often dangerous and always chaotic and uncertain world of youngsters casually abandoned by their families and society at large. It also subtlety illustrates the legacy of former Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Winner of a Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize, the International Documentary Association’s Documentary Award, and the Gotham Awards’ Documentary Achievement Prize.”

Picture quality is bad…but it’s a good documentary.
