  • Hirschfield International Film Series: Transition and Q&A with Director Sas Carey

    27-year-old medical doctor Khongoroo grapples with what it means to remain in Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar. She misses the beautiful but remote East Taiga, where two-dozen families and relatives live in a tight-knit Dukha reindeer herding community. Ulaanbaatar, a city of 1.5 million, offers her a job when the countryside does not. With work in the city, Khongoroo must decide whether to risk the health of her three-year old daughter in the polluted capital or leave her with her grandmother where the air is clean. Q&A with Director Sas Carey following each in-person screening.

  • Orphan Muses by Michel Marc Bouchard

    1965. A house on top of a hill. An isolated village in Québec, Canada. Three sisters and their brother are reunited for the first time in many years. The reason for the reunion: the imminent return of their mother, who abandoned them twenty years earlier, leaving the town in the amorous arms of her Spanish lover. After her departure, the older siblings rewrote the family history to protect Isabelle, who was seven-years old at the time. Fantasy replaced reality. But today, as the orphans await the mother’s return, Isabelle will demand to know the truth.
