Emotional reception at Positive Economy Forum

25 September 2014
As part of its partnership with the Positive Economy Forum, held in Le Havre, France, Shamengo premiered a new documentary of Bunker Roy on September 22.
Caring for others

Catherine Berthillier, founder of Shamengo, was present at the LH Forum this week to present the portrait of Bunker Roy, who made a splash on stage and in the audience.  It was the premiere of our long-form (26-min) portrait of this exceptional Indian social entrepreneur, who created Barefoot College—a university that allows people living in remote villages to train in solar and hydraulic engineering, among other fields.

Bunker, who flew in from New York expressly for the occasion, received a very moving standing ovation at the end of the film and again following his speech. He returned to New York the same evening to attend the UN Climate Summit, leaving behind inspiring words that will no doubt continue to resonate with all who participated in this highly successful forum.
