Kansas City – Short films created by area teenagers - ranging from gritty modern stories to a don't-do-drugs public service announcement - will be screened Wednesday as the finale of Risk: At-Risk Girls Behind the Camera, a summer program for at-risk girls. Los Angeles-based filmmaker Tara Veneruso wanted to introduce the teens to the art of moviemaking...and explore some of the pressures they face today...as KCUR's Laura Spencer reports.

Films will be shown starting at 7 pm, Wednesday, July 11 at the Screenland Granada, 1015 Minnesota Avenue, Kansas City, Kansas.
