Synopsis

From paranoid small-towns to human portraits to communities in crisis, these nonfiction films explore a wide range of global, human experience.

Excess Will Save Us (France) is a bracing portrait of prejudice and paranoia set in a small French village. A San Francisco hotline becomes the target for political vitriol in Enforcement Hours (U.S.). The Furniture Maker (Cuba) crafts a moving portrait of a father and son connecting through the camera’s lens. As the day grinds to a halt, agricultural workers gather to street race in How to Breathe in Kern County (U.S.). All Cats Are Grey in the Dark (Switzerland) tenderly documents a man’s unconventional bond with his beloved felines. Libre (U.S.) reveals the hidden human cost when for-profit companies offer detained immigrants a path to reunite with their families.
