Just show them your ticket!  The River of the Kukamas Being born from the spirit of the Amazon River, Kukama people have a special connection to the water. The river shrinks and grows throughout the year, affecting the lives of its citizens. Filmed at its widest state at the end of the rain season, this documentary highlights the challenges that Kukama people face today.   Directed by Nika Belianina (Peru, 2018, 7 min.)     Crannog Alexis has a life-threatening disease. She spends her time in the wooded expanse of northern Scotland, where she takes care of dozens of others who are also sick, wounded, or dying. Some have terminal cancer; some were about to be killed because of their disabilities; some were saved from slaughterhouses. Alexis provides palliative care for animals. This film follows Alexis as she tirelessly tries to nurse a neglected sheep back to health. This quiet reflection on kindness in the face of death intimately explores the fragility and strength that comes from dedicating your life to the care of others.   Directed by Isa Rao (UK, 2018, 15 min.)     Bayandalai - Lord of the Taiga From inside his yurt deep within the heart of the sub-Arctic Taiga region, an elder of the Dukhas tribe muses about the significance of life and death in the largest forest on Earth. He is the last of the great reindeer herders of the Taiga.   Directed by Pablo Vidal Santos& Aner Etxebarria Moral (Spain, 2018, 12 min.)     Black Line A woman fishing in turbid waters, a suffering nature, the broken chant of the muezzin -- they are all linked by a thin, black line.   Directed by Francesca Scalisi & Mark Olexa (Switzerland, 2017, 10 min.)     Insect Guardian - Butterfly Paradise Back in 1980, Willem bought a remote potato farm and transformed it into a butterfly paradise.
