Children Of Allah

Children Of Allah

This film explores the consequences of the Islamic culture of polygamy on the lives of young boys by observing their daily routines in an orphanage in southern India. The boys, in the absence of a family have formed their own. “This portrait was made very successful due to the coherence between the direction, the narrative structure and the script itself.” Special mention: Medfilm Festival (Rome) ‘Marking Keith Walsh and Jill Beardsworth as major new Irish talents, this unobtrusive, engaging and affectionate jouney taking us into daily life at an Indian orphanage.’ Felim McDermott – Galway Film Fleadh


Special Mention: Medfilm Festival (Rome) 2007
