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.

Over the last several weeks I've been applying locally for grants for operating cost. Today I received a $100 gift card from the Princeton Target. I just wanted to make a public thank you to this store and Kimberly Austin, Executive of Guest Experience. Kimberly was very gracious and the gift card will go a long way in helping purchase office supplies. Thank you Kimberly and the story.

- 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.
