In Between (Republic of Kosovo) documents a valley in rural Kosovo where fathers build identical houses for their sons. A photographer follows a rebellious teenage girl into her hideout, an Amphitheater (Qatar). Brick Maker (Argentina) is a reflective examination of a family making sun-dried bricks in a changing economy. A survivor of the Bosnian War recollects the Omarska (France) concentration camp, a haunting space now forgotten. Highway to Heaven (Canada) examines the 25 houses of worship along a single stretch of road in British Columbia.
