The Problem

As parents and educators, we all want our children to grow up as mature adults with empathy and care for the world around them. We want them to become individuals who are not just smarter, or successful but also more thoughtful, curious, wondrous and kind. In the pursuit for the highest score, the best college and the best placement – an ideal future – our children run the risk of losing touch with their own humanity. We realize that contemporary life has caused a radical shift within the space of a generation. The family structure has disintegrated, automation is rampant and we are all living in a world with resources that are quickly depleting.

20% children in Indian schools are depressed; they are suffering because of our education systems.

Our Solution

At Lightcube, for the past six years, we have used the medium of film and cinema to help people get in touch with themselves.

Our answer, to use films to encourage people to get together, share with each other their personal experiences, their own stories, their worries and hopes for the future. For us, the opportunity to show a film meant a chance to help people rediscover themselves. It meant that in this extremely fragmented world of ours, people could get together and feel like they belong to a community again.

S.e.e

By showing these films in your school, Lightcube aims to help our children ‘SEE’, which means, Sensitise, Engage, and Evolve.

 

Sensitize

Students in schools to the world around them by exposing them to curated films, visual artefacts and literature that is designed specifically for them.

 

Engage

Students through workshops and exercises to give them control over the tools and techniques of image making, empowering them with the ability to construct their own narrative - design their own world view.

 

Evolve

Help students to evolve into rounded citizens, empathetic adults and caring individuals.
