69 YEARS OLD
"Life is getting better and better"
Documentary film of a professional film production team.
Maria Prean is 60 years old, when she started another big work. The Austrian goes to Uganda, a country with over 2 million orphans and an average age of 15 years only. By faith in God she gives everything to help those children. Energetic and sustainable. Despite difficult circumstances her work is changing the lives of thousands of young Ugandans.
Maria Prean founded a children's choir together with her two Ugandan sons, in order to lead Africa and Europe closer to each other and remove prejudices. She tours with 15-20 children through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Wherever they sing, people are fascinated and touched.
An encouraging and very personal documentary movie about a woman, who does not accept apparently invincible borders and who walks her way with determination
Approx. 55min, german/english mixed, optional german or english subtitles
