Opening Our Eyes
U S A
Directed by: Gail Mooney
Every day….All around the world…Ordinary people are doing extraordinary things. They are making a difference in the lives of others – and themselves. Mother/daughter filmmakers, circle the globe on a 99-day journey, seeking people who are making a positive difference in the world. They find remarkable people who are showing the world how to inspire others and create positive change – through the power of ONE.This film tells the stories of eleven change makers on six continents who are making our world a better place. Meet some of these amazing people:• Maggie – a 19-year-old on a post-high school “gap year,” who built a home in Nepal for 30 orphans… using her saved babysitting earnings! She now lives there, and has recently completed construction on a school for 250 children.• David– a physician who trekked into Thailand’s remote northern hill-tribe villages, offering medical care where there is no doctor.• Ronni – a successful event planner, who saw good food being dumped daily, and started a food rescue program. She got Australian law changed, and now saves food from waste while feeding the hungry.• Maureen & Marian – Displaced autoworkers who are fighting for basic human rights in the declining neighborhoods of inner city Detroit. How many people does it take to change the world? Only one – one person at a time.
