HOUSE WITHOUT SNAKES

Directed by Dan A. Koehler | 29 min.

In Botswana, two young Bushmen struggle to build their futures as their people are being relocated from their ancestral homeland. Ketelelo looks to education as a way to reinvent himself and provide for his family. Meanwhile, Kitsiso wonders whether he should stay in his ancestral homeland to honor his father or seek a new life in town. This intimate coming-of-age portrait explores the tension between modernity and tradition through the lens of two individuals’ hopes and fears.
Ketelelo scheduled to appear.

WHY CAN’T I BE A SUSHI?

Directed by Hoda Elsoudani | 46 min.

Two young journalists – Niamh (age 10) and her sister Sofia (age 8) are trying to wrap their heads around something incredibly serious and weighty: the sometimes-bloody Sunni – Shia conflict that has been going on for decades. The girls talk to religious figures, scholars, well known clerics, believers, political pundits, the public and more, all in the hope of understanding this absurd conflict. As they continue their road of discovery the two journalists soon realize that what unifies us as Muslims is far greater and more powerful than our differences. A lovely film.
