Human Being

Sudanese filmmaker Ibrahim Shaddad provides a dramatic and powerful account of the trials and alienation of a Sudanese villager in a large city. Shot entirely without dialogue, the film's innovative use of sound helps tell the story of a shepherd who leaves his wife and herd to settle in a nearby town.

Starless Dreams

A variety of criminal offenses and traumatic stories mark the young lives of girls who are confined at the Iranian Correctional and Rehabilitation Center for Girls. Their relationships to incarceration vary greatly; among the distress some girls feel more at home in prison than with their families. Glimpsing inside a locked-up world in a foreign country often unseen in American media, this documentary offers a picture of how young women struggle to recapture or maintain a sense of self and associated dignity in incredibly challenging situations.
