Event description
What would our society look like without one ounce of compassion?

About this Event

Reconciling empathetic, heart-warming stories with the repercussions of our modern lives, this stream of films focusses on the experimental concept of self-empowerment. Follow those who attempt to take back control as things around them unravel – a group of young black boys growing up on an isolated island, a younger sister searching for her brother’s heart in the body of a stranger, and the ones who have lost a close friend.

Boy

Today, seventeen-year-old Tatiana is not going to school. She has a far more important event planned with her friends: saying goodbye to the boy she’s not ready to leave yet. Isabelle Schapira / Belgium / 16min

Strange Days

Nina can’t stop thinking about Carla, who went missing when they were teenagers. Alice Seabright / United Kingdom / 10min

Pagans

Three young women learn about loss over the course of one Bonfire Night that takes them on a surreal journey into the depths of the English countryside. Lucy Luscombe / UK / 22min

Goldfish

A hopeful and moving story of love and loss. Set against the gritty backdrop of south London, one brave little girl goes on a journey of discovery in search of courage, resolve, and her big brother’s heart. GOLDFISH explores themes of mental health in young men, violence, and cultural stereotypes. Hector Dockrill / UK / 18min

What Bitch?

On a hot day in Bakersfield, Ketta is dragged to a Catholic thrift store by her mother and younger sister. Ketta has always felt second-best in mother's eyes. When her little nephew accuses another customer of hitting him, Ketta uses it as an opportunity to gain approval from her mother. Julian Acosta / USA / 8min

Feathers

Elizier, an emotionally-dejected new enrollee at The Edward R. Mill School for Lost Boys, must overcome memories of a tragic past, and the present hazing by his peers, in order to tackle larger issues dominating his young life. A.V. Rockwell / USA / 20min
