ME, WE - Only through community - A documentary about St. Martin
The idea of producing a documentary arises from the desire to tell through images this extraordinary experience, which has helped to change the region, the people, the feelings. A step forward in seeing disability and fragility not just as a weakness, but as a precious resource for the entire community. It is precisely in his or her hardest times that a weak person can become an opportunity; he or she can bring out the best part of the people who live around him or her. Trigger new ways of looking at life, kindle new behaviours.
The title of the documentary summarizes the spirit of St. Martin CSA
ME represents each of the 9 people who were followed in their daily-life activities (volunteers, staff members, beneficiaries…). All these stories make up a WE, the community in which each one of us can make his/her own contribution. The documentary intends to show how St. Martin CSA has been able to involve all members of the community in taking care of the most vulnerable
The motto of St. Martin CSA is “Only through community”. It reminds us that, “If you want to go fast you go alone; if you want to go far you go together.” (African proverb)
