Happy to report that I am back in Paraguay for the third time in as many years, working on GIRLS IN THE FOREST, the independent feature documentary that I’m shooting and producing with Carl Byker. This time, we are here to capture the graduation of the class of girls we’ve been following since they first left their homes to come to Centro Educativo de Mbaracayu. Housed in the last old-growth forest in Paraguay (and an UNESCO World Heritage Site) CEM is a marvel. A truly revolutionary high school, it offers a new way of life for girls in this part of the world. Moving, inspiring, and beautiful stories – so much has happened in the past 3 years!
