Action for Brazil’s Children Trust (ABC Trust) is dedicated to helping vulnerable street children and young people in cities across Brazil. The Trust raise awareness and funding to support local, community-led organisations, which give children, their families and communities the education, support and inspiration in order to transform their lives.
We travelled with ABC to Brazil visiting projects in Rio and Sao Paulo to interview local children. The trip was not without it’s challenges; all of the projects we visited were situated in high-risk areas, known for violence and shootings.
By listening to listening to the children’s stories we were able to produce two films focused entirely on their experiences within the community and their engagement with ABC Projects.
Both films were screened at the Houses Of Parliament and for ABC’s board of trustees. The films also formed part of an integrated marketing campaign with Selfridges flagship store in London to run in parallel with the 2014 Football World Cup.
‘On behalf of all at ABC I wanted to say thank you SO MUCH for our brilliant new film. It really captures the essence of what we do, is hard hitting but also positive and full of passion.
When we premiered the film at our event last night, the audience was very moved and we had so many compliments and comments on the quality of the film and the content. There were more than a couple of tears among the viewers!
I know you have worked incredibly hard to get this film just right and we really appreciate your dedication and care. Thank you so much for putting up with all our feedback and changes – it made the process very easy and enjoyable for us.’
