BYkids Goes to Mozambique for First Film Project

Neal Baer (Executive Producer of Law & Order: SVU) and Chris Zalla (2007 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner) leave for Mozambique to teach 16-year-old Alcides Soares the art of filmmaking. Shooting 37 hours of footage, Alcides chronicles his inspiring story – echoed by so many youth in his country – of life after losing both parents to AIDS. Actors Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni purchased the camera and sound equipment for this project. You can see the trailer at
