All the Invisible Children
"All the Invisible Children" (C)2005 MK FILM PRODUCTIONS SRL RAI CINEMA SPA

In support of UNICEF and the World Food Program, eight auteurs directed seven short episodes on underprivileged children from around the world. From a juvenile freedom fighter in Africa to an HIV-positive girl in Brooklyn, homeless children in Brazil to a boy who steals to survive in Italy, each story is imbued with the director's own style and perspective. Spike Lee depicts the harsh life of a girl who is born with AIDS, while John Woo skillfully captures the contrasting lives of a rich and a poor girl in China. Though the quality of the each episode varies, the film is moving enough to turn your thoughts on these forgotten children.
