Who can make a difference? Does it take a special breed to take the reins to generate change in a neighborhood, in a country, or even globally? Or can the common man can? Who Cares? is a Portuguese documentary written and directed by Mara Mourão that dives into who can make a social impact.
The film focuses on the concept of social entrepreneurship. Who is a social entrepreneur? What does it take to become one? Coined by the social entrepreneur himself, Bill Drayton defines social entrepreneurship as the action of a pragmatic individual who seeks to change the future with his or her vision by developing programs, businesses, etc., in order to make change, now.
Who Cares? follows people from around the world - from Germany to Peru, from Switzerland to Brazil and even Bangladesh. The documentary’s goal is to illuminate how people, regardless of their nationality, desired to generate change and acted upon it. Each country case began at the grass-roots level, with a response that was community-centered and community-driven and ultimately, effectuated waves of change. The film's two major takeaways being: 1)No matter how large your act is, change has the ability to make the world better 2) The act of becoming a social entrepreneur impacts the world one act at a time.
Who Cares? is an inspirational work that encourages its viewers to consider their passions and to examine how they can even bring about a difference, in their small circles. There is no such thing as too small of an impact. After all, once a person makes waves, the possibilities render a world of change.
