July 20, 2011

Here's an update from my friend and filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson:

Filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson and the AWF Team have just received a generous grant from the SEVEN Fund to produce a new short documentary in Rwanda on enterprise solutions to poverty. The film will focus on reconciling Rwandans who are involved in creative economic development projects which are transforming their communities from the inside out. Laura is also thrilled to be teaming up with celebrity portrait photographer Jeremy Cowart who will shoot a companion portrait series of reconciled Rwandans called “Voices of Reconciliation.” The film and photo series will be produced in Rwanda in late July 2011 and we are aiming for the project to roll out Fall 2011. Stay tuned for more!
