22 Apr Tool for Indian Orphan Awareness: Mother India DVD Available in Bookstores Nationwide
“Mother India: Life Through the Eyes of the Orphan” DVD is now available on Amazon and in bookstores nationwide.
Winner of “Best Short Documentary” at the 2012 San Diego Christian Film Festival, the film is a compelling documentary that chronicles the adventure of 25 courageous orphans living as a family along the railway in Tenali, India – the home base of Harvest India. The film brings to light the struggles faced daily by over 31 million orphans in India and the challenge of rescuing them from a life of begging and addiction.
“Mother India,” filmed during a two-week period in early 2012 with a small production team, is the work of first-time filmmakers David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoha – long–time supporters of Harvest India. While the team was shooting the documentary, a spontaneous effort was made to help the two youngest children transition into a Harvest India children’s home, and this becomes a central storyline in the film, which includes interviews with Suresh Kumar.
This documentary is a powerful tool for Harvest India supporters to use as a way to highlight the tremendous needs among the 31 million orphans in the nation of India.
