MONDO WORLD by Cassie Grimaldi – 5 minutes

100 CANS by Mazen Al Khayrat – 69 minutes – United Arab Republic – Documentary  

The story is about land mines. It follows a Canadian/ Iraqi urban artist who goes to Yemen amidst the heated conflict.
Upon his arrival, he is astounded by all the ordeals, he then meets with Yemeni artists, land mine extraction teams and with the local community to create art as a relief. Ambivalent emotions and challenges create a tone of hope and an authentic documentation of the threats of land mines and the power of dialogue.
Filming takes place in Mocha, no longer a major trading hub or a coffee market, the economy is largely based upon fishing. The new art entices a lot of interest, children and struggling families gossip about the foreign visitors and about the colors they brought to town.

The Syracuse International Film Festival was created in 2003 as the place where information by, for and about film and media-related programs could be brought to the community: members produce, present and promote programs throughout the year that are created to engage, inspire, and entertain.

Their Mission is to engage, entertain, inform and inspire the community through innovative film and media programs and film-based special events throughout the year; to build partnerships and present programs that will enrich the CNY community through the world of international film.
