518    Originally produced by Ronin Films in 2008. 
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
