Festival-goers will be taken on a journey with this year’s film program. Opening night explores Milena Pastreich’s PIGEON KINGS, which documents a group of men in South Central LA who train pigeons for the competitive sport of Avian Acrobatics. Also, screening is Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby’s sci-fi documentary exploring the co-evolution of humans and technology in I AM HUMAN. Closing out the festival will be Adam Khalil and Bayley Sweitzer’s haunting and inspiringly imaginative EMPTY METAL. From short to mid to feature-length in the narrative, documentary and experimental – this year’s program will surely resonate.
