The final installment of Buffalo Seminary's 2010-2011 Human Rights Speaker and Film Series will be the Western New York premiere of “Youth Producing Change” on Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m. The program at Sem will showcase the work of young international filmmakers, many of whom are teenagers. Eleven short films will bring to life the unique challenges faced by people throughout the world. 

“Young people speak with a captivating rawness – they are more honest, curious, optimistic and willing to be vulnerable than their adult counterparts,” said John Biaggi, Director of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. “These youth share universal traits that not only transcend differences in nationality, race, religion and culture, but also imbue their voices with the power to move audiences.”
