"The Children of Leningradsky"
6:30 - 8:30PM
Wollman Hall
65 West 11th Street, Fifth Floor

Despite efforts by the Russian Federation to reduce the numbers of
homeless children, many young children (ages 8-16) are still forced to
leave home.  Estimates for the number of children living on the streets
of Russia vary from 20,000 to 100,000.  An estimated 30,000 live in the
Leningradsky train station in Moscow.

Children of Leningradsky delves into the underground world of the
children who are driven to homelessness by abandonment, abuse or other
intolerable conditions.  Their situation grows even more gruesome as
they become victims of prostitution, police abuse, addiction and death.
Utilizing verité footage of over a dozen children, the film captures the
sobering reality of post-Soviet Russia. The children speak candidly
about their lives, routines and lost dreams.  (35 minutes).
