Here is a short film by Inshallah Montero about a boy, a street kid, who was taught how to read by his mother. The Little Reader, the film's title, is one of the ten finalists in the Tropfest SEA in Malaysia. The Tropfest is a film festival of short films that showcase entries from film creators all over the world. Web link - http://tropfest.com/sea/
Inshallah's film is still in the running for Audience Choice Award. Voting ends on Feb 16. Watch the film here - https://www.viddsee.com/
I am doing this for her mother, Maricel Montero, a cultural worker, literacy advocate and a good friend of mine.
Enjoy the film!
