Displaced But Not Defeated (Colombia)

For decades, civil war has raged in Colombia. Violence has displaced millions of people, like 16-year old Maria Ceballos, who fled her home when guerrillas killed her father. Moving from gang-infested settlements to over-crowded rooms, Maria's family finds comfort among fellow displaced families and moments of joy in creative endeavors. Through her lens and mentored by filmmaker Susan Hoenig, Maria puts a human face on displacement.

Poet Against Prejudice (United States)

Moving to a new country was challenging for Faiza Almontaser, a 17-year-old from New York City, who immigrated with her family to the US from Yemen when she was in middle school. She faced vicious bullying because of her Islamic identity and lost close friends to hate crimes. Through it all, her family still embraced their new home, and Faiza found a creative outlet for self-expression. Mentored by the legendary pioneer of direct cinema, Albert Maysles, Faiza's film documents her courageous and inspiring journey from victim to activist.
