CL Productions was commissioned by Lumos to produce a short film on the closure of a state orphanage in Bulgaria. Lumos is an International charity set up by JK Rowling that works to help the millions of children in institutions worldwide regain their right to a family. CL Productions has been working with Lumos since 2010 documenting through film and photography its groundbreaking work in Moldova, Czech Republic, and Bulgaria.
This short film gives insight into what life was like for young people living in the institution and revisits some of Krushari’s residents in their new homes. As per Lumos’s child protection policy, all children’s identities were hidden during filming.
