9-year-old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store, and asked people to play. The entire summer went by, and Caine had yet to have a single customer, until one day, a filmmaker named Nirvan Mullick stopped to buy a door handle. What happened next inspired this movie, and launched a movement to foster imagination and creativity in kids everywhere. Check out Caine's Arcade.
Check out the Cardboard Challenge and the Imagination Foundation that started as a result of Caine's Arcade movie by Nirvan Mullick.
