Focus Forward: Short Films/Big Ideas

My biggest challenge in writing this post was picking which film to highlight. Go to Focus Forward where you’ll find a series of 30 three-minute films, “about innovative people who are reshaping the world through act or invention.”

Screen Shot 2013-02-06 at 8.03.48 AMWorld-acclaimed documentarians tell the stories of people with life-changing ideas. A businessman has introduced the internet to 10,000 Pakistanis to engender free speech in his country. Continuing the Gandhian revolution by saving seeds, New Gift brings organic sustainable alternatives to GMO mono-cropping to thousands of Indian farmers. An online game works for breakthroughs in fighting AIDS. A philosopher takes on “honor” killing, while a Brazilian woman takes on domestic violence through graffiti.
