In My Shoes: Human Rights Watch

In My Shoes has been receiving accolades for its power to inspire action. Clevins Browne, Zanetta King and Olivia McClendon were honored to represent In My Shoes at Human Rights Watch International Film Festival’s 2nd Annual Youth Producing Change, an innovative program of ten youth-produced short films dealing with pressing human rights challenges from across the globe. From June 15-20, our students joined with a few of the other young filmmakers from Seattle, San Francisco, Boston and  Mozambique to present their films, advocate for their issues and share their production experiences through screenings and talk backs at public schools, press conferences, media appearances and a premiere event at The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.


“It is my hope, and that of my crew, that through the exposure of “In My Shoes” at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival, audiences will gain sensitivity and become aware of the growing issue of youth homelessness and be inspired to address the issue in their communities,” said Zanetta King.
