II. Closing Night Feature: COMPLICIT & Short Film PANIC ATTACK

On our Closing Night screening we are proud to present to you the Winner of seven international awards including the top prizes in Paris, Valencia Spain, Sardinia Italy and sold out Lincoln Center and IFC premieres in New York. COMPLICIT has been an Official Selection in over 20 film festivals this past year. Shot below the radar for three years in China in the midst of an unprecedented human rights crackdown, the film is a character-driven, inspiring tale of young activists facing huge odds in their effort to reform China’s toxic smartphone factories.
