Festival - Childrens Film Festival Seattle 2020 [Online]
Home is the center of every kids universe, and family is the gravity that keeps their feet on the ground. This eye-popping program begins and ends with two short documentaries from personal perspectives that show us how there is no place like home.
** Content advisory: Three films (Home Sweet Home,Billie and The Kite) deal in a sensitive way with how grandparents can grow old and die, with affirming messages of how children always carry their grandparents love with them throughout their lives. **
