2011 Human Rights Film Festival opening night: Youth Producing Change :: San Francisco, March 10
I attended this event last year - see previous post for background about this event. Great stuff!
Adobe Youth Voices presents the World premiere of Youth Producing Change, an innovative program of youth-produced short films from across the globe showcased with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Eleven films will be shown this year, selected from over 250 international submissions. Presented in association with Facing History and Ourselves.
Watch as teen filmmakers turn the camera on their own lives and invite audiences to experience the world as they do – as a Kenyan teenager living in Africa's second largest slum, as a 15-year-old girl in India who needs to chose between supporting her family or getting an education or as a 14-year-old Afghan seeking asylum after his father was killed by the Taliban.
Thurs March 10
