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 a small group of people.
“Wherever I’d go, ” says Reuben, “I’d be so impressed by the many charitable, advocacy and NGO’s standing up against great odds and working to make lives better.”
Over the many years, Reuben’s career in film took him to over 50 countries, affording a unique perspective on the complex problems facing our planet. While his work was continually recognized with top industry awards, the search went on for more effective ways to bring about change.
Now, with NGOFilms, Reuben feels honored to be able to apply his filmmaking skills to tell their inspiring stories.
