A Stray

Directed by Musa Syeed
With Barkhad Abdirahman, Faysal Ahmed, Christina Baldwin
2016, 82min

 

On the run from a host of misfortunes, Somali immigrant Adan (Abdirahman, Captain Phillips) finds himself on the streets of Minneapolis after his mother kicks him out and his friends deny him refuge. His prospects start looking up when he finds shelter and a new job at a local mosque, but he’s evicted when he brings in a stray dog, whose presence is deemed impure by members of the Muslim community. Homeless again, he must navigate the pressures brought on by his newfound faith, past friends and an old flame, and an FBI agent who hopes to enlist him as an informant. Gritty and beautifully shot, Musa Syeed’s sophomore feature is a moving look at the Twin Cities’ underrepresented refugee community.

 
Bisonhead

Directed by Elizabeth Lo
2016, 9min

 

A poignant portrait of a Ponderai Native American group’s efforts to preserve their treaty-endowed hunting rights in Yellowstone National Park.
