Living As Though People Matter is a feature length documentary that relays the story of Father Charlie Burrows, a Catholic priest and missionary who has given the best part of 40 years to improving the lives of the people of Cilacap, Indonesia. His narrative provides a natural vantage point from which the filmmakers, and audiences, will explore both the effectiveness of our current international aid models and our best hope for creating meaningful community despite religious difference.
