Everything is New
a 70 minute feature film starring the children of the Light Of Love Children’s Home
The goal of the Everything is New project is to empower the children of the Light of Love Children's Home, many of whom have been rescued from bonded labour, child prostitution, homelessness and abject poverty. The project creates the opportunity for the children to 'star' in the cultural forms they themselves consider most meaningful - popular music and cinema.
