Beyond looks, 10 November 2012
Author: Marco Paolo Nuzzi from Italy

This documentary is raw and without all the niceties of those with a high budget, but it conveys its meaning in a direct and strong way. The way it depicts the fragility and the weakness at the core of this thirteen years old girl, and her friend, feels real. Their humane side is way more beautiful then their looks and it makes you angry to see how this world allows the practice of exploiting, not just poverty and hopes, but also innocence.

Kids and teenagers especially, should be protected and guided toward real values until they are able to discern by themselves. We - as in, us adults - should work together toward a better awareness and see the things how they really are, rather then taking them as "someone" would lead us to believe. Let's go beyond looks and materialism to see what really matters. Only then we can help the younger generations.

Watch this documentary. Maybe it's worth it or maybe not - for me it surely was - but give it a go.
