Compassion International Samuel

A shot interview/expose' on an El Salvadorian man that I met while recently in El Salvador working for Compassion International. Samuel is an ex-member the MS-13 gang, which has been called the most dangerous gang on the world. He left the gang in recent years and has been kept safe by working with Compassion International and transitioning his tattooing skills into painting the community center he works at and teaching art to the local children. I only got to spend a few hours with Samuel and could only shoot him inside the walls of the center due to safety reasons, but it was an inspiring time we had with him.
