Children Underground

1hr 44min | 2001
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.
