I had flagged this video earlier this week as one to watch, considering everything I kept hearing about “Caine’s Arcade.” You can blame it on my sickness or my jaded need to experience something pure, but I was literally brought to tears when I finally sat down and watched.
I knew it was going to be something marvelous in order for the Internet to be buzzing so much about it, though I didn’t expect to be brought into the world of this 9 year old boy in east LA who has such innocent, and ambitious, intentions. It was a welcome change from feeling way too plugged in, and listening to bratty kids du jour on the bus ride back home.
Still feeling under the weather but this certainly cheered me up. Looking forward to following the filmmaker, Nirvan Mullick, contributing to Caine’s scholarship fund, and maybe even visiting the arcade the next time I’m back in LA!
