Child 31 (UK, 31 min)
Directed by Charles Kinnane
In a time of unprecedented technological achievements and luxuries, close to one billion people still go to sleep hungry; but there's an organization attempting to change that. This powerful new documentary captures the life-changing work of Mary’s Meals in action throughout Malawi, Kenya and India and its mission to help millions of children around the world realize their dreams. Grassroots Films follows Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow – recognized as one of CNN’s Heroes in 2010 – to give a glimpse into his simple, yet groundbreaking, approach that is working to lift the developing world out of poverty and give a face to hunger's deadly numbers.
