The World Enabled Series is a collection of short documentaries that profile disabled people from around the world. These films aim to inspire discussions, prompt actions and help create an inclusive global society.
The Victor Pineda Foundation Media Team begins the series by traveling to the Middle East in 2007, where they will shoot films in Qatar and the UAE. The unique portraits the team will capture are of individuals who are fighting for peace and social equality.
Once back in the states, the films will be assembled for broadcast, Internet viewing, downloads, video-on-demand, and cell phone viewing. In addition, a compilation of the profiles will be made available for purchase on DVD. Since the projects are intended for a global audience, the foundation is seeking both domestic and international distribution.
The World Enabled Series is an excellent educational tool for schools, libraries, non-profits and NGO’s that can influence communities and policy makers. Another component to the World Enabled Series is a complete web site, which will provide additional information and resources as well as allow for discussion, action and interaction.
The World Enabled Series is a one of a kind global media project that shows the unheard stories of people with disabilities, and uses their stories as tools to inspire change and help create a World Enabled.
