Event Details

Please join us for a FREE Community Cinema screening of The Revolutionary Optimists

Amlan Ganguly empowers children to become activists and educators, with powerful results. Revolutionary Optimists follows him as he attempts to replicate his work in the brick fields outside the city, where children live and work in unimaginable conditions.

The Revolutionary Optimists proposes a workable solution to intractable problems associated with poverty, including preventable diseases and ineffectual governance. Ganguly's story suggests that education and child empowerment are crucial keys to lifting entire societies out of hopelessness.
