One woman in particular took the time to live amongst the people, teach the children, and create a documentary about their rugged lives. This documentary was made to exploit the hardships that the children of Calcutta face, as well as to make a change in the children’s lives. Born Into Brothels is an attention grabbing documentary in many ways. It invites people into a part of the world that is sadly their own, but one in which they know very little about. Through the work of a photojournalist from New York, the audience sees the lives of a group of children who are born, growing up in and intimately connected to the (what we know of as) hardships brothel-life in India.
(Thesis) Dolores Haze, better known as HH has named her, Lolita, grew up in a broken home with a distant mother. Charlotte, her mother, was removed and cold to her daughter. She saw Dolores as a rival for men’s affection and was quick to belittle her in order to feel secure in her position as woman of the house. So at an early age, Lo was picking up on the fact that her mother thought her attractive enough and possibly sensual enough to be in competition with other women, specifically her own mother. Girls “play” at sexuality starts at a young age with games such as “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours” or “Doctor”.
Gaze and Identification of Thelma & Louise The film Thelma and Louise directed by Ridley Scott is an example of the evolution of female gender role in the classical cinema. Thelma and Louise, influenced by the feminist movement, showed the audience a new non-stereotypical road movie. In the film, Thelma and Louise are depicted as two women that tired of their monotonous lives decide to go on a trip looking for adventure. Not as planned, the two women get involved in a murder and by running away, they enter into a chain of events impossible to get out. The film Thelma & Louise not only showed the liberation of women in an owned-by-men society but it also changed the traditional patriarchal form of the cinema.
Also, by mentioning her mom possesses some qualities and she is always focusing on the great impact of Dillard’s mother. One of the most obvious qualities that Dillard’s mom is to be expressive in everything that she could say to her daughter and other people. Annie Dillard uses her mother’s reaction to this unusual-sounding phrase “Terwilliger Bunts One”, using it to test pens and whispering it in her daughters’ ears in the middle of a prank, as the speaker explains on page 151 at the beginning of the anecdote. It shows the most memorable things about her mother’s personality; she is spontaneous, a word lover, and a person who deviates from normalcy on a regular basis. This is the most important quality that Dillard admires.

This shop specializes in natural hair and braids, after speaking to Mrs. Summer I began to become inspired again. I use to have a passion for hair and she helped me relocate that passion Lakisha and I spoke for many hours about how as she says “she got her foot in the door”. Lakisha informed me that from a young child she always knew that she wanted to do hair, I noticed the passion in her voice when she spoke of doing hair. I could see how much she still has love for what she does. We laughed and joked together about how she uses to put on hair fashion shows in her neighborhood for her friends and family.
Born into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids The film, Born into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids, is a documentary of prostitutes’ children in a red light district. The director Zana Briski formed a close bond with roughly four children whose parents were prostitutes. Briski offered cameras to these children, taught them about photography, and takes them on trips. I believe this film represents the concept of “the Humanities” because it is a type of Humanities; film. The film had the children taking photographs of people where ever they pleased; visual art.
