Hope & Action - The Vision of Dr. Yunis

If you're looking for a more hopeful perspective on the problems of societal disparities, I suggest you check out the engaging film, Bonsai People. We screened it yesterday at Optimo Farm Market Cafe | with filmmaker Holly Mosher - part of the Driftless Film Festival. A humble yet highly effective movie about Noble Peace Prize winner Dr. Yunis, who's helping millions of Bangladesh women, help themselves, through social businesses, microcredit and mentorship. Lessons we could learn here, for our own issues. Capitalism (and access to capital) not just for male elite, but also rural, impoverished women. The film will be on PBS in the spring. We have DVDs for sale at the Viroqua Public Market. We'll have an encore screening soon too.
