2017 Films and Events
Filmmakers will take us on a global tour of the places people live: the serene, the spoiled, and the spectacular; the beautiful, the barren, and the bucolic. From the rugged Mongolian steppe to a Mexican cloud forest, from a walled Italian village to the wild bush of New Zealand, from New York City to Kentucky’s Henry County to the beaches of Martha’s Vineyard, we will hear stories of community and conflict, innovation and tradition, generosity and redemption, hope and history.
We’ll meet people joining together to defend a way of life as well as individuals seeking to transform communities. Films follow people along trajectories that compel them (and us) to assess what is community, what is family, what is home.
