AWI Voices With Impact presents: Journeys Through…
Facilitated by: Carly D. Weckstein
- Until Our Spirits Meet Again by Alexander Nystrom
- Coming Home to Myself by Feyannie Hung and Nicole Kennedy
- Paper Planes by Sina Sultani
Journeys are often said to have a beginning, middle, and end; and yet, the specifics of these moments in transition are as varied and unique as we are. There are no distinct indications of what may constitute a beginning, middle, or end of a journey or story, but we know there is movement. In this session, joined by filmmakers Alexander Nystrom, Sina Sultani, Feyannie Hung and Nicole Kennedy, we will view three films that explore examples of physical, emotional, and ethereal journeys, and reflect on the learning we glean from our own personal journeys, regardless of what stage we may consider ourselves to be in.
Led by the filmmakers, the festival features a selection of interactive seminars and engaging discussions, related to the films and the themes we are exploring through this year’s program. If you are interested in learning about these sessions, you can see them all on our Voices With Impact information page!
