8: Directors Come Together to Focus on UN MDGs


I just found out about a movie released last year entitled "8", which is actually a collection of eight short films, each based around one of the eight Millennium Development Goals, directed by: Abderrahmane Sissako, Gael Garcia Bernal, Mira Nair, Gus Van Sant, Jan Kounen, Gaspar Noe, Jane Campion and Wim Wenders.  Has anyone seen it?  The official movie website can be found by clicking here.  The UN MDGs (for a direct link, click here) include the following:

1. To eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. To achieve universal primary education
3. To promote gender equality and empower women
4. To reduce child mortality
5. To improve maternal health
6. To combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
7. To ensure environmental sustainability
8. To develop a global partnership for development
