This video was shot on Lesvos, Greece, during a journey documenting the refugee route through the Balkans and all the way to Germany. 
Fred stands for the many people we met who choose empathy and love as the guiding principle of their actions.
Thank you, Fred, for stepping up. For believing in cultural abundance - not in cultural divide. And, most of all, for giving us a reason to smile. A smile that was much needed at the time. A smile that I am keeping in the treasure chest of my soul. For another rainy day.
For as long as we can smile, there will be hope. And with hope there is love. And love will always bring peace.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
