Although audiences may find themselves similarly frustrated by the film's reduction in scope, it nevertheless effectively focuses on the efforts of Josue Lajeunesse and his vision of building out the foundation laid by his father.
In this gleaming little gem of a documentary, a janitor devotes everything to the cause of bringing fresh water to his Haitian village. It's the rare example of an issue film that lets its subjects sell the story instead of having it thrust upon them.
Audience Reviews for La Source
Wow. La Source is a beautiful blend of both inspiration and authenticity. It's a striking illustration of how one man can generate profound change. Highly recommended!
At a time when far too many documentaries prove to be nothing more than glorified tabloid news, the filmmakers behind "La Source" choose instead to follow an undeniably positive story about something that is in even scarcer supply today than the potable water at the center of the film: the indomitable human spirit. One leaves the theater believing that there's hope for humanity yet.
La Source is an amazing film that shows how one man's vision to make a change is accomplished. The scenery is incredible and the subjects of the film draw you into their world. I have already seen it twice and plan on showing it to everyone I know.
