This thought-provoking documentary is about the orphaned and homeless teens in Seattle nicknamed Ave Rats. For years The Ave in Seattle has been a haven for homeless youth. The population and services available to the kids has changed dramatically over the years. Most of the kids have been forced into downtown Seattle by changes in University policy. We will follow several young people fighting to make their way and survive. We will ask the kids about the system and what can be done to help them transition into the adults they want to be. We will also hear from those who have escaped the street. Will the kids we follow make it off the street? L, V

Director: Musa Syeed

Widely considered to be the crown jewel of Kashmir, Dal Lake is a sprawling aquatic community where erupting political violence often distracts from the natural beauty. Gulzar, a young, working-class boatman, plans to skip town with his best friend in search of a better life, but a weeklong military curfew derails their departure. Forced to wait it out, Gulzar takes a job assisting a pretty scientist named Asifa. As they navigate the floating landscape, collecting water samples for an environmental study, an unlikely relationship blossoms between the two. When Asifa's research reveals harmful pollutants, Gulzar realizes that the ecology of the lake and an entire way of life face an alarming threat, and everything in his own life begins to take on a new hue.

Lush cinematography heightens the region’s visual splendor in this enlightening feature debut from Musa Syeed. Intricately weaving contemporary issues with traditional culture and ancient myths,
Valley Of Saints is a vibrant, lyrical film about finding one's path home in a changing world. ENVIRONMENTAL
