40th Anniversary Retrospective: From the Vault Program
Like urban mountaineers, the immigrant window washers profiled in this short incisive film rappel down sheer cliffs of city glass. Knowing that a fatal fall may await them over the edge of any given skyscraper, they are nonetheless happy to take the risk because it yields a far better life than any they could ever hope for in their home countries. Still, their thoughts away from the job are unusually prone to existential musings.

Born into Brothels

40th Anniversary Retrospective: From the Vault Program
For children born into the brothels of Calcutta, the options of lifting themselves out of the cycle of desperation are scarce. But when a photojournalist takes a group of kids under her wing, she teaches them to create, to strive and to hope. And when they awaken to their own talents, the results are breathtaking.
