The Change Makers (2010)


As a reporter, Céline Hue decided to meet men and women of exception, people who bring a big ray of sunshine into the lives of others. Brave and involved, sometimes a little quirky, they have chosen not to comply with the rules but rather to make change happen when the system fails them. Thanks to their new and original ideas, these true pioneers fight to change mentalities by developing projects that bring hope.

Meet Father Boyle, the director of the Home Boy Industry, an American association that only hires ex-gang members, or Trevor, the inventor of the pipe pump carousel, that provides running water to schools in South Africa. Céline’s spontaneous comments and sensitive approach allow her to build strong relations with the people she encounters. Thanks to these “Change Makers,” tomorrow is another day.
