ManKind is No Island
Using images found on street signage in Sydney and New York, Jason van Genderen shot this entire movie on a cell phone!

Winner of the TropFest NY 2008 award, the world's largest short film festival, this is three and half minute experience that will leave you inspired.
23 Year Old Mother of 30
It is not unusual for high school graduates to take a year off to "find" themselves before starting college. And that's exactly what Maggie Doyne intended to do. At age 18, she strapped on a backpack and headed for the South Pacific Islands to start her trip around the world. Several months later, she traveled to a remote village in Nepal, where she felt a deep sense of belonging - a sense of home. Distressed by seeing so many working children, many of them orphans, she decided to sponsor the education of one child. Soon, one became five, then ten, and Maggie very quickly realized that she wanted to build a home where these children could live. In five short years, this 23 year old has built a home for 30 children, as well as a primary school for 230 children. Listen to Maggie's story and find out the dream she wants to realize in her lifetime.
