Throughout the ages, the tension between tradition and modernity is brought to light by remarkable individuals who, fueled by their own dreams and possessing an indelible human spirit, push the boundaries of tradition and challenge cultural norms. Berit Madsen (SEPIDEH—Reaching for the Stars), Zeresenay Berhane Mehari (Difret), and Thomas Balmès (Happiness) offer stories of people who propel themselves—at varying speeds—into conflict with the way society expects them to live. Moderated by Caroline Libresco (Sundance Film Festival).
Open to all credential holders and the general public on a space available basis.
