Young Voices - a short documentary
A short documentary for the Carnegie Hall Voices of Hope Festival, April 16-30, 2021. The online festival examines the resilience of artists and explores the works they felt compelled to create despite—and often because of—appalling circumstances and human tragedy.
From its inception, Global Arts Corps has brought together performing artists from opposite sides of cultural, religious, national and racial divides to hear stories of those they have learned to hate and fear. In light of the organization's new focus on children, GAC has produced a short documentary exploring young people's perspectives on the world around them, the pandemic, and how they might redefine hope at this transitional global moment.
