Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick on Vimeo.
A video about a kid in East LA who built a cardboard arcade in the back of his dad's used auto parts store. I'd seen this referenced around the internet a lot this week, and finally got around to watching. It's well worth the ten minutes to see the whole movie, not just for the portrait of Caine (who is an awesome kid, by the way), but what happened when it hit the internet, and the arcade was mobbed with hundreds of visitors. Looking at the movie's web site today, Caine has had upwards of $38,000 donated to his college fund, and climbing! Go, internet!
I'll be showing this video to a class or two this semester - will keep you posted on the reactions in China...
