There’s something unbearably powerful about the fragile image of a small child alone in a vast empty space. I finally found time this weekend to watch the hugely acclaimed film, Lion, which tells the story of five-year-old Saroo, who gets lost on a train taking him thousands of miles across India, away from his home and family. The audience fills the frame with dangers of our own making, crowding in on the little lost figure at the centre of the shot. And worst of all, this is not just a sad story, it’s a true one.
There are films that leave you feeling happy and there are films that leave you feeling sad, but that space in between holds a host of important work that actually wants to teach us something. Jaded by the often unreliable nature of narratives we are fed, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the gravity of exactly what we are being asked to really look at and it comes back to one of my favourite question when discussing documentary, does aestheticising an issue anaesthetise an audience to it’s subject matter?
Sadly, there is nothing unique about the story portrayed in Lion; there are over 11 million children living on the streets of India, with over 80,000 going missing each year. Horrific as this is, I find the ease with which we often ignore these crises equally shocking. So this Christmas, instead of watching the same films I watch year in and year out, hoping to make a chilly me a little cheerier, I plan to use my choice of Christmas films to educate myself and where possible, take action.
