After the overthrow of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaucescu in 1989, Boston Globe photographer Michael Carroll captured the squalid conditions and AIDS epidemic ravaging some 400,000 children living in that country's overcrowded orphanages. Carroll went on to cofound Romanian Child Relief, which provides professional development and other support to people caring for abandoned and at-risk children in Romania.
Don Hahn, the Oscar-nominated producer of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King and director of the recent Waking Sleeping Beauty, follows Carroll's career as a photographer and a humanitarian in the 2010 documentary Hand Held. It screens for free, Saturday 4/2 at 5:30 PM at Saint Xavier University, McGuire Hall, 3700 W. 103rd St. Hahn and Carroll will attend.
