Day 1 with the kids is today. Team is meeting in about a half hour to go over details. The entire group -- both the kids from Reencontro and the teens with UNICEF -- is meeting us here at the hotel, where we will do introductions, learn how to use cameras, and do a little photography. Portraits will be the subject of today's shooting activity. Russell, who makes portraits for a living and who teaches Venice Arts portrait workshops back in Los Angeles, will be leading. Expecting photo uploads to website later today. Also, filed under video is the first of several interactive profiles of the team. This one is a short video-subtitled audio interview with Maputo filmmaker, Zegó, who will be assisting Neal and Chris with the film.
When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
