EXTERNAL: Kalinga (Care) Film Screening
CharityVillage Presents Films to Change the World, a new initiative to serve Canada’s nonprofits and the causes they support, in partnership with Story Money Impact. Throughout the year, we’ll present impact films that bring focus to some of the most challenging issues of our time, and an opportunity to learn how these films can serve your organization, engage your constituencies, and educate your communities.
The October/November film, Kalinga (Care), shares the stories of several Filipina caregivers and nannies in Vancouver, bearing witness to their sacrifices as they struggle to reunite with their children and families, and mapping out the emotional landscapes of migrant labour. Despite the sacrifice these caregivers make to support their families, the work of nannies isn’t properly honoured by their communities or themselves. The film seeks to change that by telling this powerful story and providing a dialogue around the issues. After viewing the film, please visit charityvillage.com/charityvillage-presents to view the discussion with director Kent Donguines and film-participant Maria Facundo-Lilly.
