The goal of the documentary authors – Lawin Khalil Mustafa and Ankit Khanal – was to develop a product applicable for raising public awareness and attention tosocial issues concerning street children of Kathmandu, Nepal. Street children areinvisible in society and filmmaking is effective for promoting their visibility.“Shadows of the Street” is a product which was developed by first conducting asituational analysis of street children who lived in Kathmandu, Nepal. Before production was initiated, the process involved a study of the theme through literaturereview and qualitative research. The research on the subject enabled preparation of anaction plan, which was the foundation for the documentary production. Throughout thestudy and production process, data was collected through audio-visual interviews, non-formal discussions and observations. A field diary also supported documentation. Inaddition, the filmmaking approaches which were adopted for the production includedthe concepts ‘social filmmaking’, ‘video in development’, and ‘video for awarenessraising’. The filmmaking process followed five consecutive stages: development, pre- production, production, post-production, and distribution and exhibition.“Shadows of the Street” was published by the non-profit organisations Silver LiningCreation ry Finland (Silcreation) and Motivation for Achievement Group Nepal (MAG Nepal) on the 20

Media coverage was also substantial.The phenomenon of street children in Nepalese society is a constitution of variousinfluences which root from feudalism, socio-religious and geo-political factors. Life inthe streets is hard. Violence and abuse is everyday life for street children.
