Please bring a vegetarian dish of your choice, Indian themed if you so choose. Hosted by OU Amnesty International.

Born into Brothels, by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski, is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative power of art, it is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes. — http://www.kids-with-cameras.org/bornintobrothels/
