These absorbing documentary character studies lovingly explore a handful of unique characters and their relationships with the objects and the places that define them. Stunningly artistic photos are captured on a tiny camera worn by Mr. Lee, a roving feline in CATCAM (USA). Burly men take pride in their work creating ballet shoes in THE PERFECT FIT (UK). WRITTEN IN INK (Poland) is the compelling story of a man trying to get back in touch with his sister after 14 years. An offbeat, touching portrait of Bruce Metz reveals how he became MR. CHRISTMAS (USA). DINOSAUR EGGS IN THE LIVING ROOM (Brazil) creates an idiosyncratic portrait of an eccentric widow who looks after an impressive collection of fossils and documents. THE LAST ICE MERCHANT (Ecuador) has made a living harvesting glacial ice from the tallest mountain in Ecuador for fifty years, but now change has come to his community.
