Posh Corps is a 75 minute documentary film about the modern Peace Corps experience. Posh Corps is the first film to capture the experiences of volunteers during their service.
The film focuses on Peace Corps volunteers in South Africa, one of the most modern countries in which Peace Corps volunteers serve. The experiences of these volunteers perfectly capture the modern Peace Corps experience.
The story of Peace Corps volunteers is often told, but this film may be the most complete portrait of a Peace Corps host family.
Feast & Sacrifice is a carefully observed portrait of a Senegalese family living on the ragged edges of globalization. Questions of work, gender, and aspirations emerge as the family prepares for the biggest holiday of the year, the Islamic Feast of the Sacrifice.
