Conversation with Maharaki…

(Santo Domingo Nov 16, 2013) – Maharaki is here with her exquisite short film Vivre as one of the eleven finalists in the Global Shorts section of the 7th edition of the Dominican Global Film Festival. The 13-minute film opens in a classroom in Guadalupe with a teacher asking her students what they want to be when they grow up. One dreamy 10-year old, Thomas (Ydriss Bonalair) lets his mind wander to three different outcomes and takes the viewers along. The outcomes are all different –good, bad and tragic, but all hinged on the different choices the adult Thomas makes at some point. “When I grow up, I want to make good choices,” the young Thomas finally tells his teacher and fellow students.
