Catching out
"In this engaging film, several contemporary hobos embrace an American tradition by traveling on the rails for free. The film features a seasoned eco-activist named Lee, a young nomad named Jessica, and a tramp couple known as Switch and Baby Girl. In three interwoven stories, Catching out follows these trainhoppers as they navigate between the constraints of society and the freedom of the road."--Container.

Lot like you
A Lot Like You follows the journey of filmmaker and domestic violence counselor Eliaichi Kimaro to the Chagga tribe in Mount Kilimanjaro to explore her paternal roots. Kimaro, a mixed race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother, chose to make this film to deepen her understanding and relationship with the Chagga culture and people. It presents a picture of a family that has changed because of national and familial politics, and discusses a variety of subject matter within the Chagga tribe, such as education, history, politics, tradition, social hierarchies, marriage and rape. Kimaro eventually finds a connection with the women in her family because of their similar experiences of sexual abuse. Although the memories they harbor are unpleasant and painful to talk about, the acknowledgement of their pasts brings closure and peace. Kimaro's film reminds the viewer that even the most inexplicable of experiences will eventually find their meaning in the right context where one can finally say, "I understand, because I am a lot like you." -- from alotlikeyoumovie.com website.
