A Bridge Between Two Worlds relates how Muslim and Catholic farmers, on the indonesian Island of Flores, overcome poverty and enhance their environment with the support of North American and European families. This astonishing chain of solidarity was initiated by Gilles Raymond, a Canadian volunteer from Québec who has forged deep bonds in Flores over the past 15 years. This story is punctuated by hard work, children’s smiles and ancestor worship. It builds a living bridge between our two hemispheres, at a time when foreign aid is too often being questioned.View the trailer
