22 Gen “SARA ASMAN” by Neha Dwivedi
Between the realism of the documentary and the enthralling passion of a delicate storytelling, “Sara Asman” travels the streets and questions the faces of a complex country, between light and shadow. With great sensitivity, the camera reveals faces and places, protagonists of a story of rebirth and hope. What makes “Sara Asman” an exceptional documentary is certainly the discretion and delicacy with which Neha Dwivedi, the director, confronts reality.
Through a simple and sinuous directing style, the film tells of a wonderful social initiative in support of numerous children with a troubled existence. Through the comparison between the heroic work of the volunteers and the past of these poor children, the harsh reality emerges, almost only evoked by the words of the guardians or by the eyes of a child.
