Editorial Reviews

This is a film which challenges our notions of child labor. It peeks into a world where the concept of childhood as we know it has no meaning, where children support their parents, and where work is just another part of growing up. This is Dhaka, Bangladesh. Following several children over a period of six years, A KIND OF CHILDHOOD is an attempt to focus on the realities of child labor, with real children, their struggles and dreams.

Idris is one of thousands of children who earn their living on the busy streets of Dhaka. Although he had to work from an early age to support his ailing father, he tries to hold onto his dream of an education, even while working long hours as an assistant on a public transportation vehicle. When circumstances force him to drop out of school, his desire for an education is replaced by new dreams of urban success. Eventually, the harsh realities of city life begin to close in on Idris, forcing him to reconsider his goals as he enters adulthood.

A KIND OF CHILDHOOD follows the path of Idris' life over a period of six years, documenting the complexities of balance and survival in a unique and personal story of 'childhood' experience.
