Connections: Previewing the 2019 One Take Film Festival

Apr 1, 2019

The One TakeĀ Film Festival is coming back for its third year. This hour, we get a preview of the line-up and discuss two of the documentaries highlighted in the festival.

"Midnight Traveler" follows an Afghan family as they flee their country after the Taliban puts a bounty on the head of the family, film director Hassan Fazili. We talk about their journey, the dangers faced by refugees, and the process used to make the film.

We also discuss "Jawline," a documentary that follows a teenager in Tennessee who hopes social media will help him find a better life outside of his hometown. It's a look at the impact social media can have on users and content creators.
