Compassion / Action

Sohei was created in 2014 to tell stories in film and other media about the hopes and struggles of people throughout the planet, about their rights to dignity and about the efforts of those who seek to enhance those rights as well as those who seek to repress them.



The first film from Sohei Productions follows the lives of three resilient women as they struggle to provide better futures for their children in one of the poorest and most misunderstood countries in the world, the island nation of Madagascar.
This film had a successful film festival run in 2018 and 2019 and is now in distribution on multiple streaming platforms. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.


This is the story of the gifted and forceful humanitarian Pedro Opeka, an Argentine priest who inspires hope for an entire nation by teaching people living in Madagascar's largest landfill to build a highly functional city in the capital of their failing African country.
This film will be screening in film festivals throughout 2020. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.


Madagascar - one of the poorest countries on the planet - has a population of almost 30 million people. Half of them are children. Half of the children are chronically malnourished.


Sohei has created a U.S. charitable organization dedicated to helping children and their families in Madagascar by contributing to Father Pedro Opeka’s Akamasoa Humanitarian Association (“Akamasoa”).


Akamasoa was started by Father Pedro Opeka in 1989 with 70 families then living in Madagascar’s capital city landfill.  Akamasoa is now a virtual city with housing, hospitals, schools and work sites for tens of thousands of Madagascar’s poorest families.  

This is the only U.S. charity for Akamasoa endorsed by Father Pedro.
