Projects - A Traves de Sus Ojos

A journey through the eyes of three disabled students in Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala.  The video was created with the “New Life School” in Antigua, an educational entity  dedicated to helping the handicapped students of Guatemala. Some of the children who have severe hearing or vision deficits, learning disabilities, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, or attention disorders can’t gain an education in the overcrowded Guatemalan school system.  This inability is either due to the teacher’s inability to teach them, the ridicule of the other students or the general social lack of understanding.
