Children Of Leningradsky (Full Movie)

Poverty Porn.  I believe that seems to be the new terminology for programmes gracing our televisions these days.  From programmes about benefit cheats and the unemployed to those who have fallen into debt, they’re all there.

In many countries of the former Soviet Union though, it’s on a different level altogether.  Children abandoned at a very young age are left to fend for themselves.  Drawn into substance abuse, prostitution, crime and gangs.

Hanna Polak is a Polish film director, cinematographer and producer.  She took the streets of Moscow and produced the film below ‘Children Of Leningradsky’ in 2005.  It documents the lives of those children and the hardships they face on a day to day basis.

Although produced in 2005, not much has changed in Moscow or many other countries of the former Soviet Union.
