The Revolutionary Optimists

USA, India | 2013 | 95 min

Amlan Ganguly doesn't rescue children living in slums; he empowers them to become change agents, battling poverty and transforming their neighborhoods with dramatic results. Filmed over the course of several years, The Revolutionary Optimists follows Amlan and three of the children he works with on an intimate journey through adolescence, as they fight for the better future he encourages them to imagine is deservedly theirs.

The Revolutionary Optimists received support from the IFP Independent Film Week, premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and is released through the Sundance Institute #ArtistServices Initiative.
