No Monsters in Berlin
A young refugee and teacher struggle to escape the horrors of the woman’s past. This short portrays the lingering effects of immigration in a sweet love story. This short film features amazing actors and so much heart.
This was my personal favorite, but be sure to bring the tissues! Refugee tells the story of a mother immigrating to America but separated from her children in Africa. It is honest, shocking, raw, and incredibly moving. This is a must see!
In this short, a studying doctor from Columbia uses his skills to assist those in need around him while working as an activist against foreign mining in Columbia. This short shows gorgeous on-location filming of Columbia and an unforgettable lead character. Dr. Diaz is my new favorite guy hero, with almost superhuman talents within a real, normal person.
A mysterious refugee shows the joy of imagination to a young boy through miming. They overcome language and cultural barriers to become unlikely friends. Halim is an absolutely beautiful short, with a captivating and touching story you won’t forget.
