520 A shelter for children on the outskirts of New Delhi
provides food and accommodation for 350 boys. Some are
orphans, others have been abandoned, still others have run
away from home. About half are held under a court order,
having been picked up from the streets for petty crimes.
Living at the institution for several months, the
filmmaker explores its routines and the varied experiences
of several boys. Despite the harshness of their lives,
many show remarkable strength of character, knowledge, and
resilience. One day 181 child labourers arrive, placing
additional strain on the building's deteriorating
facilities. The institution does what it can, but is it
enough? Gandhi's children is a film by David MacDougall,
one of the world's leading figures in ethnographic
filmmaking. It forms a striking companion piece to his
previous films on schools and schooling in India - the
Doon School quintet, Schoolscapes and Some alien
creatures. "Going right back to one of the first films by
David MacDougall that I saw Lorang's way, made in 1979 in
partnership with his wife Judith, the thought occurred to
me then that if Jane Austen had had the opportunity to
make a film, it might have emerged like a MacDougall film.
I still feel the same way after watching Gandhi's
children." - Andrew Pike, Ronin Films. Gandhi's children
