Program 1 – Little Stars

Short films that celebrate a youth perspective of the world. At times serious and surreal, but most often humorous and imaginative, the films in this program explore how children and youth grapple with self-acceptance and cultural pride, peer pressure and adolescence, family disconnection and reconnection, and growing into roles of community leadership and ecological responsibility.
