Whence We Came

101 min
Shorts Program Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, USA

Try as we might, we can’t outrun our family, our history, or our identity. This group of short films examines the intricate relationship between who we are today, and the people, ideas and cultures that reared us.

Along the way, this collection of films investigates interfaith relationships, overbearing parents, long-dormant histories, and the possibilities for connection in the face of Covid-induced physical separation.

Featured films: Bayla’s Issues, The Book of Ruth, Gentle, Mazel Tov CocktailVirtual Love
