Watch our range of films that will help show why some children are institutionalised, the impact to them and their parents through separation, the systems that need to change and what Lumos is doing to support families and reform care systems.


Behind the Walls

25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Lumos explodes the myth that orphanages are full of orphans. Our new film, Behind the Walls reminds us of the desolation of life in institutions and orphanages. In the film, J.K. Rowling says: “This is a massive global problem – eight million children trapped in institutions around the globe. But it’s a problem we can solve. I think all of us want to think that we’ve helped give the next generation the best possible start in life.”
