a documentary about children from the third world, facing difficult social and economical conditions.
14 February 2006 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

La Esperanza Es El Arco Iris De La Vida We watch four different stories from four different parts of the world, which all share one same element: the innocence of children against the ruthless life. These four stories each represent an area of action that UNICEF deals with, which are HIV-Aids, female illiteracy, child workers and criminal activities among children. Therefore, the main aim of this film is to offer a cinematic contribution to children's rights with the support of UNICEF. However, don't just expect a 90 minutes tour of poverty, pain and suffering with dull background information. There is much more than that. First of all, the stories are mainly told by the children involved in the situation so you get a glimpse into the children's world and can enjoy a different perspective. For example, what could a little girl at the age of three mean by saying that her mum has a special liking for cleaning and wants to see all the cars on the streets shining? Or that her father is an adventure-loving explorer and that she is the queen of the treasures? Three year-old Maca from Argentina shows us the moment of happiness in her life in spite of the realities she cannot yet see. Ravi lives with his grandmother in a remote village in India. He has to walk a long distance to the school in another village, because he is not wanted in his village because of a reason he is not aware of. He has to work to save extra money, because he doesn't have a uniform to wear in a simple school dance. 70 year-old Eusebia has never learned how to read and write. That is because she had to work when she left the Amazons and came down to the town. Now her grandchildren share the same fate, although they are eager to learn. But life in Peru won't give them a chance to choose. Binta lives in a village in Senegal and she goes to the school every day. But her cousin Soda is not as lucky as her... Apart from four touching stories, the film is also enriched by breathtaking scenes from the unknown parts of the world.
