DiCaprio, Hounsou, Blood Diamond and SOS Children's Villages

Thursday, January 1, 2009
24 children from the SOS Children's Villages in Maputo got to act alongside Hollywood greats Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou in the movie "Blood Diamond", which will open across Europe in late January.
SOS Children's Villages in Mozambique is known locally for staging colourful public performances for their own entertainment as well as for the community, which includes traditional dances and other cultural activities. So when the producers of "Blood Diamond" asked the Ministry of Women and Social Services for children who could play "extras", they were directed to SOS Children's Villages.
