As a young Peace Corps volunteer in Chile, Reuben saw real poverty for the first time and never forgot it. It was there that he learned that CHANGE IS POSSIBLE, even by the efforts of small groups of people.
Over the years, Reuben’s work with National Geographic, Discovery, HBO and Public Television took him to over 50 countries, affording a unique perspective on the complex problems facing our planet. Wherever he would go, Reuben was moved by the many charitable and advocacy organizations standing up against great odds to improve peoples’ lives.
Now, with NGOFilms, he is honored to be able to apply his filmmaking skills to tell a few of the stories inspired by those organizations.
