3rd i collaborates with The America India Foundation, (AIF) Young Professionals, to present The Revolutionary Optimists. This critically acclaimed film captures the inspiring stories of young South Asians as trail-blazing agents of change.
“If you want to start any kind of change, start it with the children.”
In the slums of Calcutta, Alman Ganguly and his proteges – Shika, Salim, Kajal and Priyanka – use street theater, dance, and data as their tools to mount vaccination drives for polio, turn garbage dumps into playing fields, and conduct education campaigns around health issues. It’s truly extraordinary to bear witness to the undeniable sea change Ganguly has set in motion.
This event is a fundraiser for AIF.
