A short interview with Happiness, a young woman from Malawi, Africa,
who is HIV-positive. Happiness addresses her experiences with stigma
and the lack of food and medicine. This film was shot in Malawi this
past summer by Cara and Dustin Pattison, co-founders of the non-profit
organization Bola Moyo. Bola Moyo exists to mobilize and support
African communities in response to poverty, suffering, and inequality.
Produced by Bola Moyo.

The powerful story of the grassroots movement that has confronted the
World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the G8 lenders, in
each case demanding that they cancel the debts of the world's poor.
Set in one of the world's most impoverished nations - Nicaragua - it
gauges the impact of that country's indebtedness on the poorest members
of their society. Produced by Windborne Productions.
