OFFICIAL SELECTION

JURY PANEL

Varda Bar-Kar

Best Short Documentary

Award-winning director Varda Bar-Kar’s childhood spanned a myriad of countries gifting her with an eclectic embrace of humanity. Her work explores the human condition in unexpectedly uplifting ways.

 

Her documentary Big Voice (Netflix, Hulu) captures the inspiring year-long
rollercoaster journey of high school choir director Jeffe Huls and his most advanced ensemble.

 

Varda recently completed Fandango at the Wall (HBO, HBO MAX) another feature music documentary that follows Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra founder Maestro Arturo O’Farrill to the United States-Mexico Border for a musical convergence with the masters of son jarocho that transforms the border wall from an object that divides to one that unites.
