Despite slipping from the headlines, aid required to rebuild is as needed as ever. Filmmaker Will Parrinello who is raising money today through a special benefit, the Nepal Film Festival in San Rafael.
"I think a lot of us go to Nepal for the first time because we have a love of the mountain and the beautiful culture that's there, and then we get to know the people. And, because of their spiritual beliefs-Buddhism, Hinduism, they have this incredible perspective on life and the world. Although they have very little, they're able to find happiness in life. It's because of the people I wanted to help," said Parrinello.
There are three separate showings at the Smith Rafael Film Center, beginning today at 2 p.m. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to grass roots organizations to help quake victims. Please click here to help donate to the film festival's relief efforts.
