“Share in the quiet of knowing. No need for telling you sometimes, when all the answers are so plainly showing.” Indulge in these real-life stories of the human spirit on display in all its marvelous variety. Brett Marty’s The Fiddler (US 2017, 10 min) introduces us to a Silicon Valley engineer whose medical diagnosis forces him to reshape his priorities. Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan's Skip Day (US/UK 2018, 17 min) is an elegiac look at African American high schoolers reveling in their youth in the Florida Everglades. Amy Hill and Chris Riess’s Hula Girl (US 2018, 11 min) offers the inside scoop on one of the 1950s most enduring fads. In Ivan Cash’s Agent of Connection (US 2017, 4 min), one BART employee takes pride in being an ambassador of personal outreach. Gary Weimberg and Catherine Ryan’s Mothers and Daughters: 8 True Stories (US 2018, 6 min) offers a set of intimate portraits of that special family dynamic through all stages of life. Sara Newens’ Footprint (US 2018, 19 min) is a lyrical meditation on The National September 11 Memorial in New York and the people who visit it.
