"The Revolutionary Optimists" by Nicole Newnham and Maren Grainger-Monsen - Amian Ganguly teaches the children of Kolkata's slums to become leaders in improving their own community's health and sanitation. Using street theater, dance and data as their weapons, the children have cut malaria and diarrhea rates in half, increased polio vaccination rates, and turned garbage dumps into playing fields. http://www.itvs.org/films/revolutionary-optimists
