Beauty Of A Stateless Mind 10 min
Beauty Of A Stateless Mind follows three artists, Genjo from Kurdistan-Iraq, Abdullah from Sudan and Massoud from Iran who are refugees in Calais infamous camp nicknamed the ‘Jungle’. We listen to their individual reflections of immigration, loss, dreams and creativity. The eldest member of the ‘Jungle’ Hossein is 75 years of age, acting as a natural form of narration in a wider outlook of the world’s crises. 
Genjo, a university student who was studying Fine Art before he fled from the war, he hold no religion and nor a huge desire for England, simply a home. Abdullah, a extremely introverted Sudanese farmer, who uses drawing as a method of communicating his problems and past. And then Massoud: a man of Calligraphy who spoke of his freedom from the wreckage of the camp whilst writing poetry. 

The artists draw and paint for the audience in the middle of the chaotic camp who hold a range of expressive and introverted techniques of visual storytelling. We follow these people as they express their personal understanding of what occupies the mind of a person in a stateless transition. We watch the demolitions of hundreds of peoples homes showing the account for the devastation these people continue to face. (United Kingdom)

Blue Streak Strong  10 min
A documentary that follows Warren Hills High School's basketball team and their response to the tragic death of one of their best friends and teammate. (United States)

Commercial Crabberman 10 min
Commercial Crabbermen is a short documentary that brings audiences into the exciting and often unseen world of professional crabbing. We join the Muermann family in Lanoka Harbor NJ, a small town on the Barnegat Bay, to discover what goes into catching the blue claw crabs that many hungry customers in New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia restaurants consume nearly daily. Seeking answers to questions like “how does crabbing change between the winter and summer seasons” and “what can go wrong on a crab boat in different waters?”, Commercial Crabbermen brings an awareness to a difficult job that might otherwise go unrecognized. (United States)

The Guru and the Farc 14 min
Bangalore: In June, the Colombian Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed a historic peace pact that ended a 52-year-old armed conflict that has cost over 220,000 lives and displaced more than 5 million people. Today, in a world torn by strife, inter-racial or communal violence and total breakdown of communication, be it in Kashmir or the US or France, what happened in Colombia in June 2016, is a historic anomaly. Does India's spiritual prowess have an answer to the ongoing conflicts in the world? As India celebrates the ancient tradition of Guru Purnima today, honoring the lineage of masters and seers, who have gifted the knowledge of peace and spirituality to the world, ‘The Guru and the FARC’ is a powerful documentary film made by Argentinian filmmaker, Paula Schargorodsky, that talks about Colombia's Indian connection. It discusses the crucial role played by Indian Spiritual Guru and humanitarian leader, Founder of The Art of Living, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the peace process that ended one of the bloodiest conflicts in the region. (Argentina)
