Breaking Silence
Written and Directed
by Nadya Ali                                                
USA 40min
Breaking Silence aims to take the first steps towards opening up the conversation about the inescapable fact
that sexual assault and abuse are prevalent and widespread within the Muslim community. By exposing the realities of sexual assault and rape with women opening up on camera, this short doc aims to be a driver of change as the community will be forced to face the issue head on.

A Walk To Freedom
Written and Directed
by: Dan Pearson                                          USA 30min
Donna Hylton is a women's rights activist and criminal justice reform advocate. Hylton speaks publicly about the issues facing incarcerated women and girls and the impact the significant increase in the female prison population is having on families, children and our communities. A Walk To Freedom follows Hylton as she is granted permission to visit her friends inside the maximum security prison where she served 27 years.

People Like Us
Written and Directed
by: Tina Gharavi                                            United Kingdom 11min
In People Like us Sundance nominated filmmaker Tina Gharavi proposes to take a look at the human struggle of those who are fighting to get capital cases and evidence re-examined. This short documentary follows investigators working for Resurrection After Exoneration, (a charity continuing the battle to release those condemned to death where scientific evidence can contradict the verdict) who will speak about their current campaigns and the trials and tribulations of doing this type of work. How many innocent people are there in prison?



Wall, Crevice, Tear
Written and Directed
by: Emanuel Chon                                       Israel 10min
The enormous, pale gold, hewn stones of Jerusalem's Western Wall, a remnant of the outer courtyard of the Jewish Temple built by King Herod, have been a focus of prayer and meditation for hundreds of years. Because it is a holy site, the Wall is divided into two sections, one for men and one for women. In this documentary, student director Tehila Raanan films the women's section over a year through all seasons capturing with poignant and experimental camerawork the intimacy, pain, courage and exposure that is inherent to prayer, and to all reaching out beyond self.
