DocLands Shorts: Nothing But the Facts!
CAFILM STREAMING ROOM Fri, Oct 9, 2020 - Sun, Oct 18, 2020
From remote lands and welcoming cultures, from immigration to innovation—we give you nothing but the facts in this program of DocLands short films! After a near-death experience, an Icelandic photographer and former kayaker discovers a newfound passion for surfing and a new perspective worth living for with the birth of his daughter in Chris Burkard’s Unnúr (US 2019, 16 min). Set in one of the most remote and inaccessible volcanic island chains in the world, a scrappy Russian marine biologist encounters sea lion chaos, joyous raptures, and ultimately a greater hope for the earth in Taylor Rees’ From Kurils with Love (US 2020, 24 min).
Five Years North
CAFILM STREAMING ROOM Fri, Oct 9, 2020 - Sun, Oct 18, 2020
Winner of DocPitch 2018, Five Years North is a film a decade in the making. After meeting and befriending a young Guatemalan boy named Luis while filming their first film Living on One Dollar, co-directors Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple followed a now-15-year-old Luis to New York City to forge a new life as an undocumented immigrant. Ambitious and complex in its scope, Five Years North captures many of Luis’ struggles in the US, from trying to learn English to finding temporary jobs, and juxtaposes them with a portrait of Judy, a Cuban American ICE agent patrolling the neighborhood where Luis now lives. With intimate access to their subjects, Ingrasci and Temple delicately capture two sides of one of America’s most heated and complicated issues.
