Filmmaking Tip: I never had an intention to make this video. I was on a trip to the Salesian Mission at Korr, Kenya, to make a general documentary about the mission. One day I traveled with the group that went to distribute relief food, where I met this girl. I was moved to tears. I cried as I filmed. Ever since this girl has haunted me.
