BYkids Film Screening


International House Davis and Senses Cultural are combining forces to offer a very special FREE film festival in Davis on Tuesday, Oct. 23 showing films made by 16-year-olds in Mozambiqe and India.


“Fire in our Hearts” (India, 27 mins.)

“Home is Where You Find It” (Mozambique, 27 mins.)

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Davis and Yolo County residents to see a unique and creative way that children are being empowered,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director of I-House.

The international film project is the work of Holly Carter, a New York-based journalist, filmmaker and founder of the nonprofit BYkids. BYkids pairs teens in Third World countries with professional filmmakers to produce kid-centered documentaries about their lives.

Senses Cultural is a Sacramento-based nonprofit that promotes the work of BYkids and organizations like it dedicated to improving the lives of women and children across the globe.

Tata Monfared, CEO of Senses Cultural, will introduce Carter, who is currently planning a documentary made by a teen in Afghanistan.

The evening is free and open to the public.
