Little Rebel
Dir. Aimie Vallat & Guido Ronge | USA | 10 min | Short Doc | 2017
Isatou Jallow, a woman from The Gambia living in Seattle, advocates for women, asylees, and people with disabilities. Dimensions of Isatou’s epic journey—from her origins and physical hardships to scholarship, becoming a lawyer and leader, demonstrating an ultimate resiliency and altruism— are deeply human, harrowing, transcendent, tenacious…and part of the American immigrant story.

Presented with our community partner, JAYU’s Human Rights Film Festival.

Refuge in the Rockies
Dir. Kaio Kathriner | Canada | 12 min | Short Doc | 2018
This short documentary tells the story of young Columbian refugee and Para-alpine ski champ Anderson Losada. An obscure law prevented him from Canadian citizenship and cost him his Paralympic dreams.

Presented with our community partners, JAYU’s Human Rights Film Festival, Canadian Sport Film Festival, and Variety Ontario.
