We Make Movies On Weekends are avid film-makers and movies fans who are lucky enough to enjoy the prestigious Academy Awards as the famous and talented are celebrated. At the same time, we recognise that there are thousands across the globe fleeing from terrorism, corrupt governments, and suffering daily. These same people are being further victimized by first World Governments who deem themselves more important than other countries and their own public. We as humans can enjoy ceremonies such as tonight but also urge the need to support others in their fights.
