This year’s festival participants discuss the ways they have crossed the thresholds of diverse cultural worlds in their media, embracing and revealing many boundaries, borders, and breakthroughs of the human experience. These filmmakers have traveled with asylum seekers living in limbo between nations and  exposed the societal borders drawn by differences in class and gender. They have highlighted the political art and activism of Australia’s Aboriginal inner-city community Redfern, and helped audiences understand  the unique challenges faced by autistic teens. This discussion will also include Mongolian artist Tuguldur Yondonjamts speaking to the global, visual conversation seen in his festival installation, Between Two Giants

The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Faye Ginsburg, director of the NYU Center for Media, Culture and History, while the virtual reality cinematic documentary Herders will be introduced by the Center's associate director, Dr. Pegi Vail.
