Storyline

In some parts of the world, children whose parents are sent to prison and who lack other guardians are locked away along with their parents. This eye-opening documentary tells the story of what it means for a child to grow up in prison and what hope exists for a better life. "Waiting for Mamu" follows internationally-lauded social worker and 2012 CNN Hero of the Year award-winner Pushpa Basnet, founder of a development center for children who would otherwise grow up behind bars in her native Nepal. Written by Thomas Morgan

Excellent awareness film
6 September 2013 | by adam-198-344278See all my reviews

This film opened my eyes to what happens to children of criminals in Nepal. The way the film followed the lives of each child around captivated my attention wanting me to know what happened next. Centering around Pushpa, the matriarch of these children, I could not help but want to meet and hug her in person after watching this film. My eyes teared watching her win the CNN award. I realized after wanting to take these children home to my house, that the film had touched me in an extraordinary way. The filmmakers had a way of knowing where to be and when at the right moments, every time. It's no wonder why this film won the audience award at Traverse Film Festival 2013. Great film and highly recommended.
