Film: Espwa (Hope)

This week, Park City, Utah is packed with film-lovers, filmmakers and industry insiders for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Saturday, several festival goers had the chance to see a special documentary film: Espwa.

Kreyol for hope, the title perfectly captures all the film is about. At first glance it may seem to just be a commercial for Tide, but to break it down as such would be a poor summation. Tide’s Loads of Hope program has become a major force in disaster relief efforts both stateside and elsewhere. The film is a team effort between Loads of Hope and an incredible organization Operation Blessing. The film highlights how availability of basic needs like clean laundry can bring hope as people work to rebuild.

“In the grand scheme of things it’s a tiny drop in the bucket, but we’re happy to be a part of this little drop in the bucket.”

We got to have a quick phone chat with David Darg, who worked on the film. He has his hands full with disaster relief work, filmmaking and more. We’re deeply excited about this film and all that he’s involved with. Stay tuned as we share more of his work and other stories from the team at Operation Blessing.

Please take a few moments to watch and share.
