Hailed as "Captivating" by the Los Angeles Times and "Superb!" by the Wall Street Journal, this award-winning animated documentary traces the unconventional upbringing of filmmaker Jung Henin, a Korean child adopted by a Western family after the end of the Korean War.. Humorous and poetic animated vignettes track Jung from the day he first meets his blond siblings, through elementary school, and into his teenage years, when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home and ignite the latent biases of his adoptive parents. The filmmaker tells his story using his own animation intercut with snippets of super-8 family footage and archival film. The result is an animated memoir like no other: clear-eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, and above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart.. Winner of the Audience Award and the UNICEF Award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Gandhi's Glasses Award - Special Mention at the Torino Film Festival. "Dazzling! Incredibly moving." - Screen International. "A story of incredible resilience and great courage!" - Le Figaro

Haitian-born director and former Minister of Culture Raoul Peck's newest film is an indictment of Western aid to Haiti. After the massive earthquake that struck in January 2010, killing an estimated 250,000 and leaving 1.2 million homeless, a flood of aid and agencies arrived at Haiti's door. Some had an agenda to help, others had an agenda to protect their own assets and interests. Three years later, what state has this aid left the Haitian people in? Peck's powerful and thoroughly investigative film shows all the levels at which aid, NGOs and political ploys have left Haiti in turmoil. He unveils the true face of international aid as a failure full of organizational ineptitude, broken promises and hidden agendas. This must-see film paints a vivid picture that the "aid" of foreign powers is more realistically an occupation

The problem is that no inmate is willing to leave the country voluntarily. Thus begins a relentless administrative procedure to force them to leave
