Sleeping Giant

Teenager Adam is spending his summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior. His dull routine shatters when he befriends Riley and Nate, smart aleck cousins who pass their ample free time with debauchery and reckless cliff jumping. The revelation of a hurtful secret triggers Adam to set in motion irreversible events that test the bonds of friendship and change the boys forever. [Synopsis courtesy of Cannes Film Festival]

A People Uncounted

Documenting their culturally rich yet often difficult lives, and demonstrating how their present state has been deeply shaped by the tragedies of the past, A People Uncounted brings the Romani history to life through the rich interplay of their poetry, music and compelling first-hand accounts. As ethnic intolerance flares up across Europe, A People Uncounted sheds light on this unique culture while presenting the Roma tale as emblematic of the world’s legacy of racism and genocide. A People Uncounted was filmed in 11 countries and features dozens of Romani — including Holocaust survivors, historians, activists and musicians.
