Children of the Arctic | Directed by Nick Brandestini | 1 hour and 34 min. Feature Documentary| USA/Switzerland, 2014.
Children of the Arctic
is a year-in-the-life portrait of five Native Alaskan teenagers coming of age in Barrow, Alaska - the northern-most community of the United States. As they embark on their journey into adulthood in and outside of Barrow, they wrestle with their roles as inheritors of a jeopardized culture. Their decisions are inseparably tied to the fate of their community. Who will carry the Iñupiat torch? Who will choose a more individualistic path? And what hangs in the balance?

Zima | Directed by Cristina Picchi | 12 min. Short Documentary | Russian Federation, 2013.
A portrait of a season - a journey through North Russia and Siberia, through the feelings and thoughts of the people who have to cope with one of the world's harshest climates; a reality where the boundary between life and death is so thin that is sometimes almost nonexistent, where civilization constantly both fights and embraces nature and its millenarian rules and rites. A reflection on life, adaptation and the immutable cycles of existence.
