And they did succeed. For this motley group of girls including children rescued from bonded labour, juvenile delinquents as well as orphans,street children, children from single parent households etc, opportunity came in the form of intervention of NalandaWay Foundation. A film making workshop conducted by NalandaWay's trainers in April 2011 saw great success in the outpouring of creativity it initiated.
Over the course of three days, the children were taught various skills such as story writing, direction, camera handling, art direction, music, acting and other aspects related to making movies by NalandaWay trainers. Such was the resourcefulness of the children that concepts that could stump even an adult were grasped so quickly and the children were ready to make their own movie at the end of the three days!
NalandaWay is now proud to present to you the fruit of these children's labour - "Kan Moodi Kan Thera", a short film entirely scripted, directed and created by these children using the skills acquired during the three day workshop. The story draws inspiration from their own lives - It is the story of fear that often afflicts our lives, and how to overcome it. This is just the first step in what we hope will be a life changing project. To view the short film, please click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itFGW7Rz1l8
