Project Spotlight: The Little Prince of The Andes

TLPA

“IF YOU EVER THOUGHT YOU WERE TOO SMALL TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, YOU HAVE NEVER SPENT A NIGHT ALONE IN A ROOM WITH A MOSQUITO.”

– Tupac Saavedra

 

Filmmakers Tupac Saavedra and Rebecca Montag ventured to Bolivia to follow a group of former street children in El Alto. These children participated in a theater therapy group, in an effort to cope with past trauma, associated with abuse, drug addiction, and abandonment. Saavedra documented the group’s experience putting on The Little Prince. What began as a journey to show these children’s transformations quickly became a call to action, when the theatre program ended due to lack of funding. Now, Saavedra and Montag are using Kickstarter to go beyond production costs –  they want to fund another 2 years of theater therapy, for the children who’ve shared a piece of their lives.

Check out the Kickstarter for “The Little Prince of the Andes” here. And let this be a lesson, there’s always a way to make a difference.
