Jean Watson – star of the star people

Jean Aunty and the Star people. unblurred

No one would know this 80 year old Berhampore resident, Jean Watson would have such an unusual life creating a children’s orphanage in India called the Karunai Illam. And after 30 years of doing this, Jean is now the star in the film Aunty and the Star People telling her own story, which featured in the NZ International Film Festival and has just been released in theaters around New Zealand.

In this interview I had the amazing opportunity to talk to Jean for B-Side Stories and get some simple yet real insights on her life that could be meaningful to us all.
