BMy name is Nina Schmidbaur and I am was able to attend the Human  
Rights film festival in New York this summer and received a copy of a  
film called Youth Producing Change (link to trailer), a film created  
by “11 teen filmmakers from around the globe who, in turning the  
camera on their own lives, invite audiences to experience the world as  
they do: as a Kenyan teenager living in Africa's second largest slum;  
a 15-year-old Palestinian refugee camp resident; a 15-year-old girl in  
India forced to chose between feeding her family or getting an  
education; or as a 14-year-old Afghan seeking asylum after his father  
was killed by the Taliban.”
> I will be hosting a showing of the film on October 16 at 8pm in  
> Newton 201. The film touches on the world’s most important issues  
> and I think it is a film that all should see, and I know that if it  
> were an extra credit event many more people would come. Please  
> forward this email to any teachers you think would be interested and  
> feel free to email me back with questions or concerns.
> Sincerely,
> Nina
> Details about the different films
> Among the short films featured in Youth Producing Change is  
> Alexander Oakes' Growing Up in India. "I am proud," said Alexander.  
> "This film will open the eyes of the world; it's like a chain, every  
> link is a person. Every person has a story to tell. In the end we  
> all connect and are one. We must think this way to be able to make a  
> change and be the change."
