Faces of Kibera is a New York State nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping the rising number of orphans in Kibera, Kenya. Kibera is the largest slum in East Africa. With an estimated one million people concentrated in one square mile, the living conditions in Kibera are desperate for all, and particularly difficult for the children. Our goal is to push back against this tide of poverty, illness and deprivation by creating and supporting a community-based facility outside of Kibera to provide care, education and services to the orphans of Kibera.

Exclusive: New Photos From ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ Starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck & Ben Foster
After seeing “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” earlier this year at theÂ Sundance Film Festival, we saidÂ in our reviewÂ that it’sÂ ”a wholly engrossing and impressive piece of work that the movie world will be talking about all year long.” Indeed, the chatter around the well-received film is likely to continue as it heads to the south of France next week to screen for international audiences and critics. And today we have some exclusive images from the movie, which is one of ourÂ 15 Most Anticipated Indie Films Of The Summer. Featuring a stellar cast includingÂ Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster, Keith CarradineÂ andÂ Nate Parker, the story follows an outlaw who escapes from prison to reunite with his wife and the daughter he’s never met. And that’s just part of the film, which we called “aÂ searing, romantic crime drama and love story.” As these images suggest, it’s not only a great story, but it’s beautifully lensed as well.Â Here’s the film’s new synopsis.
Produced byÂ Toby Halbrooks, James M. Johnston, Jay Van Hoy, Lars Knudsen, Amy KaufmanÂ and Cassian Elwes, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” will arrive in theaters viaÂ IFC FilmsÂ on August 16th. It will play as part of theÂ Critics’ WeekÂ section at Cannes and also hitsÂ BAMcinemaFestÂ in New York City in June.

Hollywood’s female actors tend to fall into one of two categories when talking about themselves. The sexy starlet types will try effusively to convince you they were tomboys growing up, while the serious actors â irritated to be talking about anything but the art – will begrudgingly allow you to write that they were dark-minded toddlers or troubled teens. So,Rooney Mara: which were you?
“I like that. That’s good.” She smiles, and it takes her extraordinarily malleable face from blank to beautiful in an instant. “Well, OK: when I was three or four, I decided to dress up for Halloween as Clara, the crippled girl in the Heidi books. I wanted to make it authentic so I insisted my mom wheel me around in a buggy; you know, because the crippled girl needed a wheelchair.”
Did she agree to that? “Sure she did. She was totally on board.”
Certainly, then, one couldn’t accuse Rooney Mara of lacking the requisite, natural-born imagination from which to draw the range of characters she’s created, from her blistering tour de force as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, to her short but memorable turn as Mark Zuckerberg’s quietly furious girlfriend at the start of The Social Network. But it’s her face, sculpted in the tradition of a Mary Pickford or Mae Marsh â all Slavic cheekbones, porcelain skin and cool, intelligent eyes â that instantly mesmerises. It’s an extraordinary face: plain and pretty at the same time, she gives away nothing in person but everything when in front of the camera. Steven Soderbergh, director of her latest film Side Effects, describes it as “[a] very classical, almost silent-movie face; very ‘shootable’.” • Read full story »

Over the past two years, 27-year-oldÂ Rooney MaraÂ has emerged as one of the most talked about and talentedâif intriguingly complicated and enigmaticâyoung actresses of her generation. In fact, Mara’s ability to convey a range of often competing emotions without going over the topâused to such great effect in her Oscar-nominated performance as the determined-but-damaged hacker Lisbeth Salander inÂ The Girl with the Dragon Tattooâis party of what makes her so irresistibly watchable. But what’s she really like? On the eve of his retirement from feature-filmmaking, Steven Soderbergh, who directed Mara in the new psychological thrillerÂ Side Effects, graciously agreed to illuminate for us the completely unadulterated, absolutely unembellished, thoroughly unvarnished truth. Here, we present a Mara in full.
[Editorâs note: This interview was conducted via e-mail, and contains coarse language, discussions of nudity, and exorbitant amounts of biting sarcasm. Reader discretion is advised.]
STEVEN SODERBERGH: Did you think you were Little Miss Hot Shit in college, or did that come later?
ROONEY MARA: When I was at college, my nickname was Keds, because I wore Keds. I guess it wasnât really a nickname, because nicknames are usually given to you by people who are your friends and who know you. But I didnât know the people who called me Keds. I think that they didnât like me because I didnât want to join a sorority. I left that school.
SODERBERGH: Sounds like you would have been asked to leave if you hadnât left on your own, especially since you think that all sororities should be abolished. Your background is boring me, so letâs get to the movie stuff. When you were working with [David]Â FincherÂ onÂ The Girl With the Dragon TattooÂ , why did he have to do so many takes of all your scenes?
MARA: Har, har . . . Because I am such a pleasure to be around, Fincher would prolong my scenes so that I would be on set all of the time. And maybe because I am stubborn, I thought that I could out-stubborn him. But you canât out-stubborn a Finch. He was always right, though. Not everyone can make films with âless than one take,â like you.
SODERBERGH: So do you really have any tattoos? Or was that acting?
MARA: I donât have any. That was acting.
SODERBERGH: And are you an expert hacker? Or was that acting, too?
MARA: That was also acting. Unfortunately.
SODERBERGH: So why didnât you win the Oscar?
MARA: Lots of reasons . . . I know how much you love your Oscar. My dogâs name is Oskar.
SODERBERGH: As an Oscar-winner, I find that incredibly insulting. By the way, do you know that your dog hates the way you smell?
MARA: Heâs sleeping next to me right this very moment. He loves everything about me, bless his little heart.
SODERBERGH: In our movie,Â Side Effects, you were asked to play a woman who is struggling with clinical depressionâamongst other things. I must note for the record that, as your director, I did not see you do any preparation for this role. Do you wing it all the time, or were you just trying to fuck up this movie specifically?
MARA: Clearly, on the eve of your retirement, you stopped paying attention to everything. When I do a film, I follow the director. And because you wing everythingâlike this interviewâI decided that thatâs the way I should work as well.
SODERBERGH: I think we both know how much I prepared for this interview. But just to give theÂ InterviewÂ readers a little bit of insight . . . For the first week of shooting, I told you to do the opposite of what I wanted you to do, because I knew that you would do the opposite of what I asked. Then you stopped doing that, so I started asking you to do what I wanted, which you did for a while, and then I went back to asking for the opposite, and then, after about day nine, I was so medicated that Iâm not sure what happened. Tell me about that.
MARA: If you hadnât lost your ability to read people, you would have known that at first I was doing whatever you askedâand then slowly, bitterly, I started doing the opposite.
SODERBERGH: Glad it was a short shoot. By the way, you wanted your fee onÂ Side EffectsÂ to be paid to you in small, unmarked bills. Whatâs up with that?
MARA: Shh . . .

The ‘Side Effects’ star gets candid aboutt cursing, nudity and on-screen sex with co-star Channing Tatum in sit-down with her director, Stephen Soderbergh
Rooney Mara tells director Steven Soderbergh just how much she trusted him while filming âSide Effectsâ in the new Interview magazine.
âI just do what Iâm told, when Iâm told,â she says. âThere is a line, though â like when you asked me to do reverse cowgirl with Channing (Tatum, who plays Maraâs husband in âSide Effectsâ), and I put my foot down. If the character should be nude in the scene and it makes sense and I trust the person making the film â and I regret my decision to trust you now that I know you more â then I donât see a problem with it. I certainly donât want to be involved in anything that is gratuitous, but I donât think the human body is something to be ashamed of. Â
âEvery other person on the planet has the same parts as I do. So seeing them shouldnât be a huge shock to most people,â she says.
âFirst of all, reverse cowgirl occupies a very important position in porn â pun intended,â jokes Soderbergh. âPlus, you told me that you couldnât stand to look at Channing, so I was just trying to solve a problem.â
âYou would know,â she says âIf I recall, Channing didnât want to look at me.â
She also tells Soderbergh that she wonders about how a movie would be completed if she were to die part way through filming.
âSometimes I think about that â like, âOkay, if I died right now, would they have to reshoot the whole film? Or would they be able to edit around it,â says the former âGirl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
âThen I think through the scenes that are left to shoot, and weigh if they would be able to finish it or not.â
And growing up in the Mara house meant watching your mouth with bad words.
âWhen I was growing up,â she says, âI wasnât allowed to say âfart.â Fart was a swear word. We had to say âhonkâ instead â âHe honked!â A penis was a âwinky.â But these days, I like words with a little more punch.â
âLike doodie?â asks Soderbergh.
âLike c—,â says Rooney.
