Visionaries (Susan Sarandon) 

What makes a visionary? For some, it’s the passion for innovation. For others, it’s seeing opportunities to make a difference where the rest of us may have already given up.
This week on Full Frame, conversations with visionaries who are using their global fame to make an impact.

Susan Sarandon is an Academy award-winning actress who has stared in films like "Dead Man Walking" "Thelma & Louise," "The Client," and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

In addition to her work in front of and behind the camera, Sarandon is also an activist and humanitarian. She dedicates her time and resources to advocate for social and political justice. She’s an outspoken voice on issues such as capital punishment, world hunger, HIV and AIDS awareness, and LGBTQ rights. She’s served as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Goodwill Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

She recently shifted her focus to helping those affected by the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal. More than 9,000 people died. Those who survived are still struggling. Sarandon saw that first hand when she volunteered in Nepal with Live to Love International. Now she hopes to encourage tourists, from across the world, to visit the beautiful nation.

Susan Sarandon joined Mike Walter in the New York studio to talk about her illustrious career and her recent work in Nepal.
