Online film screening.
The films in this program range from the distressing to the uplifting, but they all explore the
pain and destructiveness of isolation, and the need for economic, cultural, and spiritual community. They urge us to acknowledge the very real divisions in our society, to lend a helping hand, even if it’s a virtual one, and to value the connections and coalitions that sustain us.
The film The Day I Stopped Talking contains English subtitles. Unfortunately, closed captioning is not available for the other films in this selection.
The Day I Stopped Talking (Anna Quon, 2018)
In this delicate audiovisual poem, a child is cut off from the world.
