Three young directors to launch films by young offenders of law

MUMBAI: Kiran Rao, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane will launch three short films made by law breakers from an NGO called Aangan that works to rehabilitate and look after young offenders.

Each of the three films called Jaan, Shaan, Imaan ? Love, Pride, Honour ? have been scripted, produced and filmed by young boys between the age of 15 to 18 boys from the NGO.

Scripted, produced and filmed by these boys, the films will be screened together as a 10-odd minute short film since they are in an unfinished stage. The films depict the stories of circumstances that led them into a vicious circle of crime through remand homes and juvenile jail.

Says Aangan trustee Shailja Mehta, ?The idea is to start a discussion about the state of these children. We try and bring focus to the cycle of vulnerability and crime, by bringing them out of certain high-risk areas like Govandi, Bhiwandi, Antop Hill and Dongri and helping them make better choices.?

The event will be held at Mehboob Studio on Wednesday in the presence of the filmmakers. Vijay Krishna Acharya, writer of Guru (2008) and Dhoom (2007), would also be present to support the directors.
