Young people are on the front lines of many of the world’s human rights crises, but we all too rarely get to hear their point of view.” Human Rights Watch.
Center co-director, Barbara Glickstein, interviews young media makers from all over the world who are leading community organizing and social change. They have turned the camera on themselves to share their stories with the world. These 11 films were featured at the Youth Producing Change series at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival, June 18-19th in NYC. www.hrw.org/en/iff/youth-producing-change-3
A broad youth movement exists today and the media is mostly not talking about it. Even in the most marginalized communities young people have influenced decision-makers at the highest levels of power.
