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, CHILDREN UNDERGROUND 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. CHILDREN UNDERGROUND won the Sundance Film Festival's Jury Prize, the International Documentary Association's Documentary Award, and the Gotham Awards' Documentary Achievement Prize.

Great documentary, makes truly realize that there is always someone out there who has it worse than you do. With this documentary, I have learned to appreciate everything.
