Film shows ‘hip and creative’ side of charity

It's a long title, but We Can’t Change the World, But We Wanna Build a School in Cambodia is a just-released slick Japanese youth motivational film.

The story, about four Tokyo university students who raised enough money in one year to construct a school in Cambodia, is based on a real-life account.

It stars TV idol Osamu Mukai, and its director Kenta Fukasaku is noted more for pure, violent genre fare.

The Hollywood Reporter says, “Despite its simplified and pat concept of volunteering, Third World aid and account of Cambodia’s history and problems, it is one of the few efforts of its kind that make charity look hip and creative.”
