Last night, Aware hosted a film fundraiser at the Palace Kino cinema in Melbourne. The profits went to fund our program in Cambodia and we couldn’t have picked a better film to highlight our vision of empowerment through art.
The Artist is an Oscar nominated film that tells the story of celebrity actor who is on top of the world in Hollywood. Times change and his genre of movies, silent films, goes out of style. Unable to adapt to the new way of film making – sound, he becomes lost without his art form.
Relying on the help from a furry friend, his long time chauffeur, and a young lady he helped make into a star, he is able to regain his self confidence and self worth through his art.
More than 40 people attended the fundraiser to help support our programs in Kenya and Cambodia and encourage children and women to feel that same inspiration and empowerment as The Artist. With your help we raised hundreds of dollars to help source materials and facilitate our projects! Thank you so much!!
