Kids tell honest and important stories, yet they often go unheard. BYkids is a non-profit organization pairing American filmmakers like Albert Maysles and Ric Burns with international youth (ages 8-21) to create short documentaries that educate Americans about universal issues.
By giving five kids each year the tools and mentoring to make a documentary film about his/her life and packaging those films for a wide American audience, BYkids will give voice to youth from diverse cultures
and encourage global understanding and engagement.
Great cause! Can’t wait to see some of these documentaries!
