Washington (I-Newswire) October 4, 2013 - Who Cares?, a popular social entrepreneurship documentary by Brazilian filmmaker Mara Mourao debuted in 2012 to critical acclaim in major cities around Brazil, including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and across top art house theaters. The film galvanizes people from all walks of life to consider how they can help eliminate major problems facing humanity by becoming change-makers through the examples of popular social entrepreneurs (such as Bill Drayton, founder of Ashoka and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Muhammad Yunus) and other social entrepreneurs from a wide-range of countries, including Canada, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Tanzania, Switzerland, Peru, Germany, and the United States.
At this year's Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) taking place from October 2-4, it will screen before 1,200 individuals traveling from more than 30 countries and speakers coming from over 20 countries.
