The H-Town Multicultural Film Festival (HTMFF) celebrates Houston's diversity through the power of cinema. 14 Pews will screen 19 features and short films over the course of three days. HTMFF is curated by two programmers: Bears Fonte, director of programming at the Austin Film Festival, as the guest curator for the shorts program; and Cressandra Thibodeaux, executive director of 14 Pews, who programmed the feature films.
Long Beach hipster wannabe Sovanna receives a cryptic letter from Cambodia claiming that her long-lost brother and sister are still alive. Ditching her dead-end lifestyle and alcoholic father, Sovanna travels to her birthplace alone to seek out her two siblings who disappeared during the civil war 20 years earlier.
With guidance from a quirky motorbike driver named Munny, Sovanna launches her search into the dark corners of Cambodia. Upon discovering a girl who may or may not be her real sister, Sovanna is ensnared into an increasingly dangerous situation, pitting her in a tug-of-war between her own personal safety, and her compassion for a stranger.
The screening will be followed by a closing party for film festival badge holders.
