“In His Own Home” Film Screening
April 22 - April 22
In His Own Home is a documentary about the March 2010 shooting of an unarmed black student by campus police at the University of Florida and the failure of the administration to address the racism and over militarization of its police force. It tells the story of Kofi Adu Brempong, a disabled graduate Student from Ghana, who was attacked by a campus SWAT team during a bungled response to a 911 call from a neighbor. It is also about students whose protests led the administration to drop criminal charges against Kofi and whose continued activism challenges police brutality.

- Best Animated Feature — Oscar Nominee
- SACD Prize — Cannes Film Festival
- Best Animated Film — César Awards
- Best Animation — Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards
Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer - and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put on trial by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Fresh from standing ovations at Cannes and Toronto Ernest & Celestine joyfully leaps across genres and influences to capture the kinetic, limitless possibilities of animated storytelling. Like a gorgeous watercolor painting brought to life, a constantly shifting pastel color palette bursts and drips across the screen, while wonderful storytelling and brilliant comic timing draw up influences as varied as Buster Keaton, Bugs Bunny and the outlaw romanticism of Bonnie and Clyde. Bringing it all together is the on-screen chemistry between the two lead characters - a flowing, tender and playful rapport that will put a smile on your face and make your heart glow. Based on the classic Belgian book series by Gabrielle Vincent, Ernest & Celestine is winner of the Cesar Award for Best Animated Feature and numerous festival prizes. (c) GKids

With aims to highlight the beauty of languages that exist around the world, the festival is asking filmmakers to incorporate language into their film.
