Children of God explores the life of the children who live beside the Baghmati River in Nepal. The children rob the corpses for food and dive into the river to grab coins used as funeral offerings by the mourners.
The film exposes the social conditions of the suppressed Nepalese people through the plight of their children, where reverence for the old and dead far outweighs the care for the young and living. Experiencing their innocence and their hardship through songs, stories and heartbreaking living conditions, exposes the contradiction of the material world that rests upon perhaps the most spiritual culture on earth.
Children of God will remind you of scenes from Slumdog Millionaire and is reminiscent of Charcoal People released by Vanguard Cinema.
