More than a film, ‘Who Cares?’ is a movement that inspires people to be changemakers. It is all about the rapidly growing movement of Social Entrepreneurship, brilliant people with innovative ideas that are creating thousands of social organizations around the world.
Directed by Mara Mourão and shot in seven different countries: Brazil, Peru, Tanzania, USA, Canada, Germany and Switzerland, the film focuses on people who have taken it upon themselves to improve societies that are lacking.
People who got tired of the situation in their communities, decided to stop complaining, rolled up their sleeves and made their valuable contribution in changing the world.
Among them: Bill Drayton, founder of Ashoka and Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner. Perhaps the biggest contribution from the people profiled in the film is the idea itself, that it is possible to solve the major problems of humanity.
