Support socially commited film project and help disadvantaged children in El Alto
by Simon Revilla
A contemporary tale about life and death in El Alto – one of the poorest cities in Bolivia
Hi, My name is Simon Revilla, I’m a Swedish-Bolivian filmmaker and author of the short film MIGUITA, which I would like to share with you here on Boliviabella. MIGUITA is the story about a child with the same name, living in El Alto. One day his brother gets sick, and needs a urgent kidney transplant. For Miguita, the following events will put his courage on the test and lead him to make big decisions. This is a story about the first confrontation with death, but also about the power of love and imagination.
Together with a small group of dedicated young people, I’m working hard to realize this project. As we all know, dreams don’t come true without effort, cooperation and financing. Since this is a personal, independent project, we want to produce it in a similar way. Therefore I would like to invite you to join us, through our current Crowdfunding-campaign! This is by many considered as the new and democratic way of financing culture. When you make a donation you don’t only support the project, you also contribute to giving disadvantaged children in Bolivia a better future through our partner NGO's which will receive 20% of our donations. Besides, we will give away exclusive rewards to our backers, such as T-shirts, DVD's and posters from the film.

The campaign is only open until the 15th of April, so make your donation already today! And remember that all contributions count. If you can’t make a donation, you can also help us by spreading the word. Share the campaign with your friends and family, and follow the project on our facebook-page:
Thank you very much for your time, and hope you will join us on this journey!
