Brownstone to Red Dirt: what a great documentary. The children’s faces are like open books. Sweet open books that want to be read.
It’s about a Brooklyn school and an orphanage in Sierra Leone getting involved in a pen pal program.
One of the kid’s referred to a great quote from a piece of graffiti: Change your thoughts, change your world. I think, the film also says, if we – adults, like me – can remember to think like these children do, a better world would seem more possible.
The film’s not just a heart-tugger. These kids give some of the funniest quotes.
