*** Best International Short ***


Far From Home follows the life of a little boy whose existence has forever been altered by the social impact of climate change. Part of a near 150,000 group of young boys living in abject poverty in Senegal, this short film exposes the dark forces that force some people to behave in a less than humane manner when left behind by societal norms. Hopefully, this film will inspire people to change the way we see and treat one another in these times of crisis.
