Shadow Lives: The Human Toll of Japanese Encephalitis

Children who survive JE infection must come to grips with the human and socioeconomic consequences of the disease. Produced in collaboration with the JE Project, Shadow Lives—The Human Toll of Japanese Encephalitis, introduces us to families who have been touched by JE and how they must cope with the lingering effects of the disease. Directed by Mahesh Nair, Shadow Lives was filmed entirely on location in India. It takes us into the world of Mahesh, Somanna, and Shekaramma—three children forced to live with varying degrees of disability as a result of JE. The film is 7 minutes long.
