When it comes to this program, there's no place like home! Take a trip around the world to see films that show how family life is the same, and different, in seven different countries. In the end, it's love that makes the world go round.

Solo in Fog
(Michael Zamjatnins, Germany, animation, 9:45 min) Nonverbal.

The Heart of Stromboli
(Tobias Deicke, Germany, animation, 2012, 8 min) In English.
A little girl makes a fruitless attempt to warn her family that a nearby volcano is about to erupt. But everyone is too busy arguing to listen to her. Only her grandfather can help her save her town.

(Mari Miyazawa, Japan, animation, 2014, 7 min) Nonverbal.
Growing up is literally the icing on the cake for a mother and daughter.

For ages 8+.
Note: In one film (Harmony Brooks) a clueless parent makes an awkward reference about marijuana to a teenager. Feel free to eye-roll along with the teen! In another film (Me and My Moulton), there is one very brief glimpse of non-explicit nudity.
