Video: Alejandro Monteverde’s Film “Little Boy” Explores the Power of Faith

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 05/01/15 - updated on 06/07/17

Film focuses on believing in the impossible

Smithsonian Institute Award winning director, Alejandro Monteverde, speaks about his latest film, Little Boy, a story set in the 1940s about a 7 year-old oy who's willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II. Monteverde says the film is about believing in the impossible, the tragic consequences of bullying, and the power of faith. As a film maker, Monteverde says he's most interested in posing questions to ignite meaningful conversations. "We spend too much time judging and fighting, " he says. "It's better to be in love, than be right."  Little Boy opened on April 24, 2015 in theaters nationwide.
