Doors open at 5:00 PM.
“All That Hope Contains” is a film documentary that will tug at your heart and stir your emotions. It’s about our schools, their schools, and the power of things.
It is the true story of reaching out, extending a hand and giving young black children the chance to learn, to grow in a society that needs them to be leaders and contributors, all while erasing a dark past as the fences of apartheid in South Africa remain to this day.
It is a history lesson, a window into humanity, an environmental call-to-arms, a touching tribute to our shrinking communities AND its lead character is a pencil sharpener.
Working with the Rotary Clubs of Grand Bend and Middelburg, South Africa, the Avon Maitland School Board and the Foundation for Education, the documentary was produced by local film makers Adam Sipione and Wes MacVicar. Adam and Wes spent three weeks travelling in South Africa along with the Rotarians to see for themselves and with their cameras how people in Huron-Perth touch the lives of children. Film Editor Adam Sipione says of the project, “We didn’t know what we had given, until we brought it back.”
This special presentation is about our communities reaching out to communities an ocean away focusing on opportunities for children in a world divided by class and privilege.
