What does it mean to 'deserve’?
Deserve is a community film collaboration involving children and adults living on the streets of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Together the filmmakers and participants contemplated what it meant to grow up in wealth or poverty.
There are personal stories of heartache and joy as each person gives their take on the life they were born into, and the consequences of social inequality for both rich and poor.
Ultimately participants agree that it is generosity, kindness and encouragement, the ability to help someone believe in and empower themselves, that allows each one of us to fulfil our full potential. Re-establishing the verb ‘deserve’ in its original context, the act of ‘serving others well’.
