The Medicine Game USA, 2013, 68 minutes Director: Lukas Korver
Six years in the making, The Medicine Game follows the turbulent lives of Native American brothers from the impoverished Onondaga Nations. Bonded by family and a love of lacrosse, the brother's childhood dream is to play Division 1 college lacrosse and becoming the first in their family to attend college. With the dream nearly in reach, the boys are caught in the constant struggle to define themselves, live up to their family's expectations, and manage living in two very different worlds.
Bhiwani Junction USA, 2013, 18 minutes Director: Abhi Singh
Bhiwani Junction is a portrait of Himanshu, a 12-year-old boy who aspires to win an Olympic boxing medal and trains at India's leading grassroots boxing gym, the Bhiwani Boxing Club. Through his eyes, we experience boxing training that is relentless, sometimes brutal, and marked by a rhythm of its own. Himanshu's dreams provide a glimpse into the dreams of millions of Indians in the lower middle class dreams that are simultaneously grandiose and pragmatic.
