BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Two Canisius College students showcased their film work on the demise of the east side of Buffalo and faith based efforts to revive it.

Digital Media Arts Majors Erik Taheri and Rich Lunghino produced the documentary, "East Side: A Community of Hope," which was shown at the Montante Cultural Center on campus Tuesday night.

The inspiration for the film came from Taheri's own lifelong devotion to helping those less fortunate who live on the East Side of Buffalo, and a summer 2012 immersion trip to the East Side.
