ANTON: CIRCLING HOME
(2020, USA, 52 min)
Directed by Dennis Mohr, Morgan Schmidt-Feng, and Katy Swailes

SYNOPSIS:
At 80 years old, artist Anton van Dalen seems to have it all: a prolific career, a house in New York’s East Village, a large family, and a pigeon coop where he lovingly cares for his flock of birds. But the veneer conceals a complex story of war, migration, family rupture, and regret. ANTON: CIRCLING HOME is a meditation on what it means to be home. Morgan Schmidt-Feng directed ON HER OWN (AVFF 2015).


Preceding the feature will be PIGEON GIRL, a short film directed by Whitney Legge.
SYNOPSIS: Maryam is a 10-year old girl with a love that borders on obsession. In this coming of age story, she embarks on a mission to protect and save injured pigeons.
