Il Rosa Nudo and My Sister Laxmi
IL ROSA NUDO (Giovanni Coda, 70 min.)
Il Rosa Nudo (Naked Rose) is an experimental film inspired by the life of the French 'Pink Triangle' deported Pierre Seel. At the very young age of seventeen, Sell was arrested by the Nazis during the war on charges of homosexuality and sent to a concentration camp. In 1982 he was the first homocaust survivor to denounce the atrocities he witnessed.
MY SISTER LAXMI (Gautam Singh, 25 min.)
My Sister Laxmi is a documentary film following 12 year old Marappa in his daring expedition to find his missing kid sister Laxmi.
The film narrates the story of missing children of India. Nearly 11 children go missing in India every hour and at least four of them are never found. Many studies point out that children are often abducted by their own relatives for ransom or child slavery before being made to beg or work as bonded laborers. Many get sexually exploited and sometimes they are even used as child soldiers or combatants in armed conflicts. This film epitomizes the story of missing children through Laxmi.
