Filmmaker with Rockland Roots to Discuss Child Exploitation at SUNY Rockland Child Rights Forum

 

 

Suffern, NY - Leonard Kurz, son of Herb & Edythe Kurz of Piermont, will discuss his upcoming film on child exploitation, "Free the Children," at the Child Rights Campaign Briefing at SUNY Rockland Community College on November 16, 11:30 a.m. in the Technology Center Ellipse.

 

Kurz, a founding member of the Board of Directors of "Free the Children," the world's largest network of children helping children through education, with more than 1 million youth involved in programs in 45 countries, currently serves as an advisor to the Board. At the briefing he will also show a DVD about the work of Free the Children.

 

Earlier this year, Kurz traveled to the Andes in Ecuador to film youth (ages 13 to 22) helping children from the local community for his film "Free the Children." One of Kurz' earlier films, "Early Misgivings," deals with issues of child abuse. Kurz' motion picture, television, and new media production company, Forest Creatures Entertainment, is committed to supporting a culture of peace and non-violence globally and has supported the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate’s Appeal for a Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence. He has filmed in China, Sri Lanka, and Kenya in addition to Ecuador and other international locations. Further information on Forest Creatures Entertainment is available at www.forestcreatures.com.
