[SHORTS] Lost & Found

These films are about the physical and emotional distance that can be necessary to cross as a result of emigrating from home. We see the consequences of moving to a new land, and the vagaries about home and the self that are created. Through these films we can see that assimilation is not relegated just within immigration and being forced into another culture. It can also include others’ idea of who you should be physically or behaviorally, in any place. These films are about losing and then finding oneself.

After your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to view the film. For more information and FAQ’s, please visit our How To Festival section.
