Introduce Yourself : Humbling by Max Mendoza

Humbling

I would just like to share my humbling experience while filming 'Hope Rises' in the Philippines last November. This feature film centers on human trafficking. We filmed at the poorest of slum areas in the country and Typhoon Haiyan hit the country then. It was truly heartbreaking to see the aftermath of this catastrophe in the news each. Please keep the victims in your prayers. I cannot wait to see the final product of this film. I played the role of Genghis, a lead orphan who creatively makes a buck with his family of orphans. This movie will make you laugh and make you cry. Please check the Bring Me Hope Foundation for updates and to see the amazing work that they have done with Chinese orphans. Thank you very much!
