Community Cinema SF presents a free screening of The Revolutionary Optimists and hosts a TEDx-style showcase of community youth leaders.
Free, but RSVP is requested.
In The Revolutionary Optimists, Amlan Ganguly teaches the children of Kolkata’s slums to become leaders in improving their own community’s health and sanitation. Using street theater, dance, and data as their weapons, the children have cut malaria and diarrhea rates in half, increased polio vaccination rates, and turned garbage dumps into playing fields.
At the Community Cinema screening, representatives from four inspirational organizations will take the stage for 10 minute presentations on how they are changing the world… and how you can be a part of it.
Hear the community’s most powerful voices’ envision the future and describe how these youth-centered and education-focused organizations are revolutionarizing optimism.
Performances, poetry, and presentations by youth representatives from:
- Youth Speaks
- Room to Read
- Marina Middle School
