Product Description

A heart-warming film by Heather E. Connell, who spent several years documenting the struggles of the garbage dump children of Cambodia. She brings the film to life through the sights and sounds of Phnom Pehn and gives the film its soul through the voices of these children as they share stories of their lives and their dreams for the future. They are the first generation of children born to survivors of the Khmer Rouge and have learned to survive in an economy and society struggling to rebuild itself. Special Features: Director's Production Blog, Updates on the Children, Photo Gallery

She relocated to Los Angeles in 2001 and founded Displaced Yankee Productions - an independent film company dedicated to using film as a platform for raising social awareness and activism through entertainment.

If the plight of the very young has ever touched your heart, you will be touched.
R. E. Spooner
This is a well made touching documentary about some of Cambodia's poor children surviving in an economy and society struggling to rebuild itself.
Bob
Often times films like this can either be dry/stricty informational or on the other hand purely emotional.

Maybe I've seen too many documentaries, but this one just didn't do it for me. Street kids in an impoverished country....been done many times before...and much better. There was no hook. The shelter certainly seems to do noble work and it was wonderful to see that, but the film's profile of the shelter was only superficial. It would have been nice to go deeper, to go "behind the scenes" into the inner workings of the shelter - into its history, how it supports itself, and how the community perceives it, etc. Plus, in my gut it almost felt like the film was an infomercial for the shelter (at one point the director drives up in this big beautiful new car - meanwhile the kids are picking through garbage for 50 cents a day - it was just very unsettling). The narration was terrible, there was no emotion, which really detracted from the film. And before you vilify me, I'd like to add that I am very familiar with the history and poverty of Cambodia, and I am quite sensitive to the challenges that the children and the country face (I lived in SE Asia for several years). However, I do recommend it as an introductory eye-opener to anyone that is not familiar with that part of the world.

This is a good introduction to how innocent victims struggle to survive. If the plight of the very young has ever touched your heart, you will be touched. The writer, director, and producer of this timely video has a written piece on why and how she came to produce it. Her verbal descriptions and heartfelt motivations are almost as good as this tightly edited documentary. The organization that is profiled is described as secular with some allowance made for Buddhist instructional release time for those who request it. Since faith or spiritual commitment are the chief motivations in most forms of charitable work of this nature, it would seem that personal interviews with the director and chief staff members regarding their belief system would have been a significant feature. Maybe these exist in a different venue--I would be curious.
Highly recommended video, with appropriate web information for contributions.

Format: DVD
An educational, inspirational look at the lives of a half-dozen children born into staggering poverty in the ruined nation of Cambodia, as well as the remarkable volunteers working to help. The conditions in the streets and in the dump are dire, and the suffering mind-boggling, but what makes this film so great is that it captures the durability of the human spirit, particularly in children, and shows that together we can rise above circumstance to make a genuine difference. Small Voices is a moving film in the best sense; by the time the "call to action" screen comes up before the closing credits, I think you will be as inspired as I was to find a way to get involved.

Often times films like this can either be dry/stricty informational or on the other hand purely emotional. This film is the perfect blend.

The film maker takes us straight into the lives of a number of children, showing us first hand their daily fight for survival. Facts and vital bits of information are seamlessly worked into the narration along with images of places the average person would never see.

The film shows the reality of Cambodia coupled with compassion and encouragement regarding the possibility of change. A must see documentary!!!
