Glimpses of Maturity: International Short Film Competition 1
4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
Maturity is such a difficult concept, full of shifting perspectives and many questions. In this programme, we witness a grieving child querying the relevance of his faith; a boy wondering if he can temporarily convert to Islam to experience Ramadan with his friend; a foreigner in Ghana asking the help of two energetic kids for his dubious assignment; a tenacious girl questioning how and why she can ferry a fridge across the Palestinian border, and how a gentle enquiry sparks a serious examination of an Ethiopian’s musical heritage.
