Alex Presents: Commando


Have you seen this film? It’s about Alex (9) from Tanzania. A Smart child obsessed by violent movie.

 

The point of the video was to show Alex not as a depraved victim but as a clever, creative little kid you might find anywhere–but one who still needs support. The video went viral; it has been seen by more than 500,000 people.   Alex’s YouTube clip is a case study in a dramatic shift in the way nonprofits represent themselves and their constituencies in an era of social media and information overload. From the ashes of poverty porn, a new era of media–one which shows the poor as fundamentally full of potential and opportunity–is being born. Source here
