About Us

Why voyage for change?

So many times we ask ourselves “Why voyage for change?” and the answer we get is always “if not now then it will be too late”. Let us be fully aware that we are in the middle of sixth mass extinction because of climate change and perhaps we now have a deadline of 12 years to pull things back or else we will perish as a civilization and with us countless other life forms. For decades now we have known about the “impending crisis” and looked the other way. But now there is a collective awakening of children in the world. We believe that for the first time in the history of human civilization children are having to strike and march all over the world to protect their future and the future of all life on Earth. “Voyage for change” is part of this collective movement of children. Our motive is being the voice of this collective ‘rise in consciousness’ of children across the world. “Voyage for Change” is not merely a film but also a film activism movement, which aspires to transform the prevailing narrative from “the future is in crisis” to “the future of hope”.

Planting a ‘seed of change’

There are two kinds of journeys for our young voyagers. The more obvious journeys are the physical ones in which the children travel to the locations where the change-maker or expert is; and the second and rather more important journey is the internal journey of transformation. The internal journey is viewed as the shift in the conscious and the sub-conscious minds of the voyagers. We believe that through “Voyage for Change” we are planting a “seed of change” in the minds of young voyagers and ultimately the viewers.

 

The core idea of “Voyage For Change” is Mobilizing, channelizing and utilizing the higher emotional quotient of children to inspire humanity.

Interconnections of all positive movements

We embarked on this fantastical journey in 2018 and hope to continue till we feel that we are not needed any more. With an understanding that it is a long “struggle for change” we intend to keep making films to bring the urgent attention of the world towards the crisis we in. Based on the unique perspective of looking at the world “through the eyes of children” we hope to inspire a collective positive action. We feel that sharing of ideas through the medium of cinema is also a very important action. “Voyage For Change” will continue supporting and being the voice of various already existing wonderful “journey’s of change”. As a platform and a collective film movement we believe in the importance of inter-sectionality and interconnections of all positive struggles of change across the world. The interconnection of positive ideas and movement is the key aspect of our approach and narrative of the films. In our films we hope to repeatedly remind the audience that all the issues are connected and we cannot be selective about our support towards them.

OUR VOYAGE SO FAR

OUR CONVERSATIONS

The narrative of this film captures an amalgamation of three main elements i.e. first the question and answer session with the experts, secondly the inner conversation (voice) of the children shared as a conversation with the director and the narrative voice of a “universal inner child” threading the entire film together as one collective story of change.

OUR VOYAGERS

The pieces of this broken world are many. Through this “Voyage for Change” our young voyagers shall find solutions and become the change agents to make Earth whole again.

MEET US

FOUNDER’S NOTE

We have a collective responsibility to minimise our negative impact on the environment and to work towards stronger solidarity among the inhabitants of our shared planet. We have to be aware of the urgency and act for a more sustainable world. The spirit of the “Voyage for Change” initiative is to make the Kids aware of alternative ways of living to avoid global catastrophes.” – Didier Bonnet
Through storytelling I meet myself and the child inside me. The challenge of keeping the inner child alive in this highly preconditioned world is what keeps me motivated to tell stories through cinema. Cinema for me is a powerful tool to serve and protect the principals’ love, equity and peace of our collective humanity. My strong belief is that “Voyage for Change” is the another such step in my life as a visual storyteller towards leaving a positive impact on mass consciousness of our civilization. – Meghatithi
