The Fest closed September 29th with the meditative and awe-inspiring USA Premiere of Pierre-Emmanuela Le Goff’s 16 Sunrises, set aboard the International Space Station. Audiences reflected on all they'd discovered about the different perspectives of HOME over the previous week.
Topics included | Migration & Imigration | Borders & Borderlands | At-Risk Communities & Ecosystems | Big Business & Systematic Injustice | Affordable Housing & International Crisis | Social & Environmental Justice | Ecology of Place | Accountable Filmmaking | Youth Voices
Whether it's issues seen in our own backyard or from the edges of the universe, we know that must make drastic systematic change in order to protect our planet home.
