The Boy, the Slum, and the Pan's Lids

Thanks to the Kalpanirjhar Short Films Festival held annually in Calcutta, a few years ago I was fortunate to see the film The Boy, the Slum, and the Pan's Lids (1995), directed by Cao Hamburger, of Brazil.

Just five minutes in duration, this is an amazing, awsome and uplifting little film, simply brilliant in conception and crafting. Little wonder then, that it has received many awards from across the world.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I just discovered that one can watch it online.

See the film here.

wow! That was really a well conceived and crafted short film that even conveys the message that children are innocent and have no malice in them.
I loved the end where the boy's mother hugs and lifts him to take him inside.
