Ileana, a little girl with a big heart and lightning smile, grew up in a trash dump community in Managua, Nicaragua. As a child she was forced into prostitution by her parents to make money for her family. Tragically, she contracted HIV and passed away in 2011. Inspired by Ileana’s courage and smile, we are raising funds through Kickstarter to produce a documentary to honor her short, beautiful and bold life. The film will also shine a light on the growing need to protect children vulnerable to sexual exploitation worldwide. We believe there is immeasurable power in Ileana’s story and we're excited to share it with you in this documentary.
ABOUT THE FILM
Using the funds raised from this campaign, Love Light & Melody will be producing a feature-length documentary on Ileana’s beautiful yet tragic life. The expected release date for the film is November 2015. Your support and donations are critical to the realization of this project.
From 2006-2011, Love Light & Melody compiled five years of film footage and still photography documenting many important moments and seasons of Ileana’s life. We anticipate that this archival footage and photography will serve as 60 to 70-percent of the film’s content.
The remaining 30 to 40-percent of the footage will be filmed interviews with individuals from Nicaragua, Brazil, Japan and the United States who were unexpectedly brought together and inspired by Ileana’s life and smile. In addition, we will be interviewing leading experts and advocates on the issue of sexual exploitation of children worldwide.
