Genre/Subjects: Documentary, Short

MUST END Thursday, February 28th
Digital presentation -
Redemption - In the documentary REDEMPTION, filmmakers Jon Alpert & Matthew O’Neill closely follow this growing army of New Yorkers whose treasures are in the trash. The film is a chance to meet the marginalized masses we often rush past on our way to catch a bus or make a meeting. They are poor but proud New Yorkers - people who don’t ask for a handout – people whose hands rake through the discards of our lives - building their lives one nickel at a time..
Open Heart - Eight Rwandan children leave their families behind to embark on a life-or-death journey seeking high-risk heart surgery in Sudan. Their hearts ravaged by a treatable disease from childhood strep throat, the kids have only months to live. OPEN HEART reveals the intertwined endeavors of Dr. Emmanuel Rusingiza, Rwanda's lone government cardiologist, as he fights to save the lives of his young patients, and Dr. Gino Strada, the Salam Center’s head surgeon who must convince Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir's government to keep Africa's only link to life-saving cardiac surgery free of charge for the millions who need it.
