Elizabeth Van Meter‘s acting career includes live theater, independent films, comedy and video game voice overs, but it’s her work as a documentary filmmaker and founder of The Purpose Project that drives her today. Its goal: to find individuals here and abroad, who, against all odds, are making positive changes in their corners of the world. In Elizabeth’s documentary Thao’s Library, we meet a young Vietnamese woman, who, despite physical deformities caused by agent orange, wants nothing more than to bring books to the children of her village. Elizabeth says she didn’t choose Thao’s story — it chose her, and she had to tell it for her own sanity.
