SHORT DOCUMENTARY

Quilt Journeys

Dir. Atinuke Diver and Mara Guevarra
5 min., Unites States, 2018

Journeys can be transformative. And while most begin as a single step towards a known destination, for a community of African-American women anchored in the Hayti community of Durham, North Carolina, the path towards courage, growth, and change isn’t a straight line, but a circle.

Travessia

Dir. Safira Moreira Dos Santos
