I was given the opportunity by Shot@Life to attend the premier of Revolutionary Optimists in New York City at theUNIFEC Headquarters. Revolutionary Optimists is a movie about Children saving lives in the slums of Kolkata India. Amlan Ganguly empowers children to become change agents, battling poverty and transforming their neighborhoods with dramatic results. Revolutionary Optimists follows Amlan and three of the children he works with on a journey through adolescence as they flight for a better future.
My goal was to educated my own son that with hard work and determination you can do anything, even when you don’t have a lot to begin with. I feel this is a perfect movie to empower parents to educate their own children about global health and social issues. Children are NEVER too young to help others and make a difference in their own communities. They just need the guidance and tools to do so.
So lets empower our own children to help others and become leaders instead of followers. To learn more about movie screening and ways to get involved head to the Revolutionary Optimists website.
