The young people at the Buffalo Center for the Arts & Technology are putting the final touches on a project six weeks in the making. It's a documentary called The Civic Heart.

The plan was for the young film makers to explore what makes our civic leaders do what they do. It was a collaboration of BCAT, Squeaky Wheel and AT&T. Besides shooting and editing the high school aged students had to interview a number of prominent local leaders including Mayor Brown and Tim Kennedy.

Joyce Stilson, Director Of Development for BCAT says:"The way you remember is by doing." The students have done it all including the shooting, editing and interviewing. 

The Civic Heart will premiere Thursday at the Buffalo Center for The Arts & Technology and then it will be on line at Squeaky.org
