“Fire in Our Hearts” features and is directed by a young woman in India. The film is about the barriers preventing young women in India from receiving an education.
The film was created through BYkids, a non-profit organization based in New York City that pairs young people aged 8-21 with renowned filmmakers to create short documentary films that explore globally relevant social justice issues from the perspective of the child. The founder and Executive Director of BYkids is Holly Carter, a CC graduate. Ms. Carter will be present at the March 23 screening for a Q and A session after the film.
