Save the children!

Far more action-packed than most documentaries about Nobel Prize laureates, KAILASH is an intense and inspiring portrait of Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi. Satyarthi is the founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan, which has rescued 83,000 children from servitude, and the film offers the audience the chance to follow him and his team as they raid illegal factories and work to re-integrate children into society. The result is a stark, yet uplifting portrait of modern-day India, with sequences comparable to those of the JASON BOURNE movies.
