Movie Night at Peyarabagan Slum

Movies have always been an integral part of people’s lives. Moreover, watching movies is not only limited to that particular duration; it has been found to influence people in many ways. Movies sometimes influence people’s behavior and are also a very powerful tool to modify people’s thoughts and attitudes. In this age of technology, people no longer stick to movies only in the languages they understand. Over and over again it is apparent that cinematic expressions always supersede language barriers.


This was again proven at a movie night that was organized for the children of Pyarabagan on 30th December. 6 movies (namely Little Hearts, The Black Hole, pencil Box, The Egyptian Pyramid, Chappal and The Paper Boy) of four different languages with a focus on inclusion, gender, child rights and ethics were screened. Children were glued to the screen the whole time.
