Ottawa Premiere of Sisyphus Rides at Ottawa Indie Fest 2017 | June 3 at La Nouvelle Scène

One World Arts is proud to support Ottawa Indie Fest 2017 and sponsor the Ottawa Premiere of the documentary Sisyphus Rides this Saturday, June 3 at La Nouvelle Scène (333 King Edward Ave).

Sisyphus Rides tells the story of Vince Vetro, founder of The Lending Journey a micro-finance organization which provides micro loans to underprivileged Nicaraguan women. In an effort to raise awareness of the plight of the poor in Central America, Vince and a group of rural Nicaraguan women cycle across Nicaragua. What follows is the slow unraveling of his organization, and a soulful examination of what constitutes real success and failure in international development. View the TRAILER here.
