WORLD PREMIERE While on assignment filming orphaned street kids in Mongolia, NYC-based cinematographer Martina Radwan feels drawn to help three of the kids escape their dead-end situations. Is it a Westerner’s savior complex? Or something deeper? Martina helps Baaskaa, Baani, and Nassa toward achieving their own dreams, and despite mistakes, misunderstandings and confusion over many years, neither Martina nor the kids give up on each other as they grow into adulthood, and Martina grapples with her own past family trauma. – Jaie Laplante
The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Martina Radwan, producer Ruchi Mital, and participants Baasanjav Munkhbat, Batbileg Tuul, and Selenge Yadmaa.
