Film: New Horizons: Brazil


11/23/11 - New Horizons: Brazil, a documentary by Maine Filmmaker Chas Bruns, is premiering on December 2nd at the Lincoln Theater at 7 PM. 

Admission: Free / Suggested Donation

"New Horizons: Brazil" is a documentary by Maine filmmaker Chas Bruns that sheds light on the lives of children living on the streets of Brazil. The film follows Maine artist John Whalley and his wife and actress Ellen Whalley as they travel to central Brazil to live and work with boys who were saved from a life on the streets by the Florida based NGO, Renaissance International.

Coined "The New Horizons Youth Ranch" by founder Steve Solomon, the 150 acre tract of land has become home to over 200 children since 1991. The ranch includes home-dormitories, a dining hall, administrative offices, a chapel, classroom buildings, as well as athletic fields where the boys play soccer, volleyball, baseball and basketball. In addition, there is a pond for swimming, a nature trail complete with vines for swinging and several streams and waterfalls. The film begs the question, "Where would these children be without New Horizons Youth Ranch?"

We would like to caution viewers that there is graphic footage of Brazilian police shooting a young boy over six times outside his own home as well as in depth interviews with children who grew up with drugs, guns and prostitution as a part of their daily lives. However, this film was not made for shock value. Rather to show the stark contrast and change in the lives of these boys after moving to the ranch.

Much funding for the program over the years has come from Maine companies and Maine people. People who have never personally met these children or ever set foot in Brazil. Come see why so many are willing to support founder Steve Solomon and his vision for saving street children worldwide.

More information about the program is available at newhorizonsbrazil.org

All proceeds will benefit Renaissance International and The New Horizons Youth Ranch.
