World Cinema – DocumentaryWorld PremiereA DROP OF WATER, Gus CantaveroCambodia / 2013 / 98 min / BluRay / Cambodia has a history of many difficult problems that continue to persist despite years of multi-billion dollar top-down reform efforts. The film chronicles a few Christian organizations led by a Cambodian/American partnership that are trying a new approach from the bottom-up, loving one person at a time. Still feeling the effects of Pol Pot's genocide, Cambodia is stifled by starvation, demands by corrupt government officials for constant bribes and a booming population of orphans. The UN occupied Cambodia for years and spent billions of dollars to re-organize the government and promote democratic elections. In the end the money was pilfered by corrupt bureaucrats and Hun Sen, a strong-armed dictator, maintained his position. Film chronicles the efforts of 3 Christian organizations run with Cambodian/American partnerships (Water of Life, Harmony Outreach and World Orphans) that are trying a bottom-up approach, loving one person at a time. Their goal is to rescue a broken society with a new generation of leaders by teaching the principles of accountability, kindness and love.

Never settling on one medium, he has done stints as a libertarian talk show host and producer of activist videos and live performances to promote peace and a populist world view. Documentary film seemed like the logical next step to take in getting out his message. With years as an independent working artist and always looking to rise to a challenge, he tried his hand at all the key aspects of the production of his debut film, "A Drop of Water" making it almost entirely a solo project.
