Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A trio of Scottsdale high schoolers teamed up to try and answer a question many youth ask when is comes to world events -- "Why Should I Care?"

Michael Notrica and Myles Kramer of Arcadia High School and Ilana Rosen-Ducat of Tesseract High School sat down with 3TV's Kaley O'Kelley to talk a little bit about their documentary, which takes a look at last year's revolution in Egypt.

"The students culminate their film with a discussion of a broader issue – how Americans and the youth in particular are affected and why it is important to critically evaluate events that occur on the other side of the globe," according to IFP Phoenix.

Notrica, Kramer and Rosen-Ducat say they plan to send their 34-minute film, which was shot bother here in Phoenix and in Washington, D.C.,  to film festivals throughout the country.

The premier screening of "Why Should I Care?" is  Wednesday, April 18 at 7 p.m. at Harkins Shea 14.
