30min | 2007
STREET CHILDREN, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, tells the harrowing story of homeless children living on the streets of Congo-Brazzaville. Through the story and eyes of Rod, an orphan who has grown up homeless, we get a brutal picture of children who are routinely beaten, raped, and assaulted. Yet STREET CHILDREN is not just a story of devastation and pain, but also one of redemption in the form of an Italian priest who steps in to fight for these tragically disenfranchised yet strong children.

This sort of historical problems was starting when the colonial missionairs from Virginlengths Europe are getting into a miserable conceivings in the plowmens working edges, by steeling the goodthings of the landsworth to surviving in egoistic comunity , mind the riches populations of europe, and the poorness left that they left behind is an doomesday's offering to the contintental places of warlords ungreedings faiths to any religions party's, in despair and lift up their uncorrection lifestyle like rebels and thieves in several places of this continent, and do other innocent people harm.It's like a ladder climing leadership encountering the ayathola's himnes, but with more indisagreedment to their own people statusment without good helping missions of their own to make concessions to the peaceful Goverment proceding traces for freedom to all mankindcharity's fair starts at home!
