Alas de Rio is a documentary that is looking to show case the voice of youth activists from around the world at Rio+20 in June.

Alas de Rio

Alas de Rio or The Wings of Rio is a documentary film that soars on the aspirations of empowered youth around the world working on all levels, from the ground up to demand action and inclusion in sustainable development, just green economies, and accountable governance for their future. 

Alas de Rio has captured hours of footage that showcases how the youth is using social networks, technology, and multi-stakeholder collaboration to bring about innovative, effective, and monumental changes in sustainable development practice and policy.

In June of 2012 the UN will be holding a global summit on sustainable development called Rio+20.  The Alas de Rio team would like the opportunity to premiere this film to an audience of 250,000 people who have a vested interest in sustainable development.  Finishing up the film and getting to Rio is going to cost money and without your help this project will not be able to premiere in Rio.

Alas de Rio is partnering with filmmakers Dori Cohen and Kelin Long-Gaye from Framing the Cause Pictures- A video production company that specializes in creating short-form documentary videos for NGOs and nonprofit organizations. Framing the Cause harnesses the power of video to humanize issues of social and political importance and to inspire curiosity and action.
