On todays episode I talk with Director Thomas Morgan. Thomas is currently attending the Sundance and Slamdance Film Festival for his new Documentary, Waiting for Mamu.
I recently screened Waiting for Mamu as part of the Slamdance Film Festival. Waiting for Mamu is a beautiful film with a powerful message. Waiting for Mamu is a powerful story of a woman named Pushpa Basnet from Kathmandu, Nepal. In Nepal, when a parent is sentenced to prison, their children will be sent to prison with them if they don't have another guardian to take care of them. Pushpa has taken it upon herself to save these children. Thomas takes us along Pushpa's journey as she rescues these children from prison and helps raise and educate their children so that they can have a better quality of life then what their parents have had.

I talked with Thomas about how he found out about Pushpa's story, how visiting Nepal changed his life, and how all of us can make a change and help Pushpa's cause continue on and save many children's lives.
Special Thanks to Thomas Morgan for taking the time out of his incredibly busy Sundance schedule to talk about Waiting for Mamu. I highly encourage everybody to see this film and share it with your friends and neighbors. Below we have a link to the page where you can help donate to Pushpa and help change peoples lives. Thank you again Thomas! Everybody spread the word and go see Waiting for Mamu.
