With the Vermont International Film Festival kicking off Friday, Champlain College professor and Local 44 Morning Brew film critic Julia Swift shared a few recommendations on what to see during the ten-day event.
Her recommendations include the documentary Sonita, about a teenage immigrant who aspires to be a rap artist, Fatima, a French/Arabic film about a mother and her two teenage daughters trying to find their identities, and the Australian fiction film Girl Asleep.
Sonita has its first screening on Monday, October 24, at the Main Street Landing Film House, and an encore screening on Saturday, October 29. Fatima also plays Monday night, in the Main Street Landing Black Box, with an encore on Friday, October 28. Girl Asleep has its first screening Sunday night, in the Main Street Landing Black Box.
