synopsis
The documentary film, "A Miracle A Day", is a portrayal of All Bengal Women's Union Welfare Home For Girls in Kolkata, India. The home is a progressive present-day example of the institutions depicted in the highly acclaimed film "Lion", whose story also took place in Kolkata. It was founded in 1932 for women and girls to have a place of refuge from brothels, trafficking, poverty and abandonment. Today it is still thriving with residents ranging from one day old through their nineties. All Bengal Women's Union provides food, clothing, shelter, education and vocational training for 150 to 200 girls, young women, elderly and care for babies as well. The staff, many of whom are volunteers, show heartfelt and relentless dedication to helping every person become the best they can be. The film is an uplifting testament to the human spirit and it's capacity to surmount obstacles and transcend adversity.

director
After many years as a still photographer and several exhibitions of long term projects, Deborah Harse began shooting video in 2005. One year later she filmed, produced and directed her first film, "Marathon Beirut, for the Love of Lebanon". This feature length documentary screened at over twenty festivals between 2009 and 2010, won awards and ultimately found distribution. "Jaipur Mahouti" is her second film.
