Born Into Brothels
This movie won 14 awards, including an Oscar. A documentary filmmaker goes to Calcutta to make a movie about their Red Light district. Instead, she meets the children of the prostitutes and makes a movie about them. She gives them cameras and teaches them to take/edit/etc. photos and we learn about their lives through her video and their pictures. It's a very moving film.
