YOUTH PRODUCING CHANGE
Thu, Mar 11, 7 pm
Filmmakers in person
Young people are on the frontlines of many of the world’s human rights crises, but it’s all too rare that we get to hear their point of view. Armed with digital cameras, computers and their own boundless creativity, these young people bravely expose human rights issues faced by themselves and their communities. A 15 year-old San Francisco resident, Noè, uses his film to eloquently describe his experience as an immigrant, and young directors in Burkina Faso enchantingly animate their short Leila, which tells the story of the daughter of poor farmers who is exchanged for a bag of millet. It’s time that we listen to what these youth have to say in this program of short films. (2005-2009, 62 min, digital video)
