60 Minute Documentary - First Aired Nationally on PBS in 1999
In the early 1990's while filming a Presidential Election in Guatelmala City, Film maker John Biffar met and American woman, Kari Engen. She had traveled to Guatemala City several years earlier on a mission to help poor, and hungry children. When she arrived in Guatemala city she learned of the plight of the children, many lost and abandoned. Living on the streets. The third world. But then she learned of the children living in the dump. The fourth world. Her life's mission has become helping these children to escape the deadly grasp and cycle of life in the dump. Her program, Mi Refugio is the result. John has documented her struggles, triumphs and tragedies for two decades. This documentary was produced in the late 1990's by Bush Entertainment and Trilogy Media, John's production company. Hosted by and Narrated by Film Actress Ali MacGraw. We are known as Dreamtime Entertainment today. I edited and filmed much of this program and it's a touching and an emotional rollercoaster as it was when I edited way back then on our Media 100 editing system. It still gives me the shivers. I hope you enjoy this program and it inspires you to change the world too. Like Kari is still doing. Go to www.mirefugio.org to help her.
