City of Hope: A Children’s Story documents the stark life of Brazil’s favela (slums) children, and is a feature-length documentary capturing the lives of displaced children caught in a seemingly unending web of drugs, violence, prostitution, sexual slavery and deliberate acts to exterminate these unwanted children. In a country with an enlightened government, it is also a film of hope and salvation as both government and Brazil’s affluent private sector work to save these children.

Getting The Word Out
It's been too long since I've written. On Wednesday June 16th I had the pleasure of speaking to the Hamilton Rotary Club. I believe that this story really has to be told. Capriole Productions is seeking funds to make this film. We are a non-profit company so any donations would be tax deductible. If you would like more information please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- I grew up in Princeton, NJ. Spent my summers on Fire Island and Deer Isle Maine, riding my horse , traveling and exploring Princeton University. I fell in love with film at any early age and decided to go to film school. I've been able to combine my love of horses with the love of filmmaking. I also love to read what ever I can get my hands on. I found that I've excelled at still photography and love to watch people.
