Description 1 online resource (streaming video file)
Summary A thirteen-year-old boy named Emmanuel living on the streets of Nairobi buttonholes the filmmakers and will not be denied. What was going to be a film about the global problem of 100 million children abandoned to raise themselves on the streets of the world turns into the story of this boy. Shot over five years in Brazil, India, Indonesia, Kenya and the United States, RESCUING EMMANUEL is a window into a growing global human rights crisis, its multiple causes and the dreams of one boy. Emmanuel's name, ironically, means " God among us." Who will notice if his life is snuffed out?
