Stage a screening of Child 31, the new film about Mary’s Meals
Première showings of the movie, called Child 31, are being planned for November by Mary’s Meals supporters across the globe – with screenings already scheduled to take place in countries including Austria, Canada, Germany, the UK, Malawi, Liberia and the Philippines, as well as in Los Angeles, Palm Beach and Iowa in the United States.
It is the latest project for Grassroots Films, an award-winning NYC-based film production company, who recently filmed at our projects in Malawi, Kenya and India as part of an unrelenting schedule to see our life-changing work in action.
You too could get involved in hosting a screening of the new film, in an effort to help us spread the Mary’s Meals message to even more people around the world.
We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest in organising a premiere screening and we’ll get back in touch with you with more details.
The new film features captivating stories about the work of Mary’s Meals and promises to make compelling viewing when it is released later this year.
It features children like Lette, a 12-year-old girl who has the sole responsibility for looking after her family. Lette is one of nearly 550,000 children in Malawi, who receive Mary’s Meals every school day, giving her hope for a brighter future.
Charity founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, recently got a sneak preview of the film and said: “After viewing the film, our friends from Grassroots wanted to know immediately what we felt but we were unable to speak for some time afterwards.
“Emotional wrecks after three minutes, we wondered what effect the complete film will have. ‘Don’t worry there will be some funny bits too’, they told me. I’m sure there will be, because Mary’s Meals is like that.”
