Bucharest Below Ground

© Bombay Flying Club-All Rights Reserved

Here's a hard hitting and gripping multimedia production by the Bombay Flying Club (BFC) on the plight of street children and youths in Bucharest, Romania. Poul Madsen, the photographer/producer of Bucharest Below Ground, describes it as a full screen feature which gives it a cinematic feel to its viewers that other multimedia producers have not exploited so far.

Romania's street children are estimated from several hundred to 10,000. These children are homeless as a result of the policies of former Communist ruler Nicolae Ceauşescu, who forbade contraception in the hopes of ruling a populous nation, or of his successors, who consider the economy of greater importance than social welfare.

This is an extremely well crafted production, incorporating all the elements of traditional photojournalism and fusing these into a cutting edge multimedia presentation.
