Sat Jan 26: 5.30pm
Wed Jan 30: 3.30pm

Festival - Childrens Film Festival Seattle 2019: Shorts
Visiting Artist
** Filmmaker (and Executive Director) Vivian Hua (Searching Skies) in attendance! **

About
Ages 13+

All children have the right to a home, but for the young people in some of these narrative and documentary films, political and religious issues threaten their futures. The films are made by filmmakers in response to worldwide migration issues, and also include a documentary from a dream city, where origins and cultural differences do not matter to a tight-knit group of boys.

77 min.

Content advisory: This program explores tough issues, and stories that do not always have happy or clear endings. There is one mild swear word in Searching Skies, spoken in frustration by an uncle to his nephew who is showing a lack of compassion.

Malá

A Vietnamese girl grows up in a European town. As she gets used to what it means to be strange and at home at the same time, her family inevitably heads towards a fatal decision. Who will leave and who will stay?
