My Hero Brother
Directed by Yonatan Nir
80 mins
A group of remarkable young people with Down syndrome embark on a demanding trek through the Indian Himalayas, accompanied by their brothers and sisters. Unresolved conflicts and the complexities of growing up with a Down syndrome child in the family come to surface, while a heart-warming and special closeness develops among the siblings as they deal with formidable physical and emotional challenges. The difficult trials and poignant relationships, set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, open new horizons and greatly deepen our understanding of special needs people and their families.

Poverty of Perception
Directed by Stefan Huynt
11 mins
In 2011, Norwegian Model Aleksandra Orbek-Nilssen was living in New York City full-time when she began to strongly desire a life with more substance and purpose. With the turn of a globe she sought adventure in Namibia, Africa. Throughout her two week trip, she was exposed to new cultures, environments, wildlife and what she described as poverty. Instead of returning home to continue her career, she extended her stay with the hope to learn more about an indigenous tribe called the Ju/'Hoan San and see how she can help them out of their impoverished life. It didn't take long for Aleks to gain the knowledge that these people were not living in poverty, but that it was her own poverty of perception that needed help.
