Life Through the Eyes of the Orphan DVD
Releases April 23, 2013
The documentary narrated by Rebecca St. James captures the lives of 25 abandoned and orphaned children living on the streets in India.
Winner of “Best Short Documentary” at the 2012 San Diego Christian Film Festival, Mother India is a compelling documentary that chronicles the adventure of 25 courageous orphans living as a family along the railway in Tenali, India. Mother India brings to light the struggles faced daily by over 31 million orphans in India and the challenge of rescuing them from a life of begging and addiction.
Mother India, is the work of first-time filmmakers David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoha. “India is growing in both population and industry, but few people know that there are over 31 million orphans in this nation,” commented Trotter (Executive Producer, Director). “Each of these young lives is much more than a statistic. Every one of them has a name, a face and a story.” Scheinoha (Executive Producer) added, “We’re not out to just tell a tragic story. We’re focused on raising awareness and changing lives.”

Oh. My. Goodness. This is the exact kind of documentary I love watching. Can you even comprehend 31 million orphans? I can’t even fathom it. When I see my own children and how unbelievably good they have it in this world, it brings me to my knees. These babies need us. This documentary opens our eyes and helps us see what we need to doing as Christians. Being like Jesus. Showing His light to the world in need. A well done documentary that your family should own, your church should be playing, and you should share with others.
