Bangalore, April 30 : Youngest filmmaker and Guinness world record holder Master Kishan's directorial debut "Care of Footpath" will be screened at an ongoing symposium at Loyola University, Chicago.

The 14-year-old has been invited by India Development Service (IDS) to participate in the symposium "India's Children: Preserving Their Rights, Protecting Their Future" at the university that started on Thursday.

According to Loyola University authorities, the movie will provide inspiration and motivation to empower children which is a primary focus of the seminar.

Kishan said this is the first time a Kannada film is being screened at a university in the US. "No other Kannada film has been screened and analysed as a subject of study and discussion. After every screening of the film, I will have to participate in a question and answer interactive session," he said.

Kishan is happy that his directorial debut will be seen by scholars, professors, donors and other participants at the symposium.

Kishan, real name Kishan Shrikanth, directed "Care of Footpathh" when he was just nine years old and entered the Guinness book of records for being the youngest filmmaker. The film has already won many national and international awards.
