Faces of Change
Faces of Change (2005) highlights the story of five activists from five different continents who relay unique video dispatches from their respective corners of the world. From their communities in Brazil, India, Mauritania, Bulgaria and the United States, they go behind the camera to find a common voice denied to them because of their social, racial, gender, or ethnic background. Their intimate videos capture their struggles, hopes and dreams echoing the nature of our common humanity.
The result is a gripping tapestry of personal stories unlike anything audiences have ever seen.
