Taking a cue from our popular Girls’ POV program, we’ve added a new one this year. Join us for even more films that push against barriers of how boys and girls should be and be seen! Take a spin with Janero as he vies to become The King of Twirl, consider how to transcend differences of culture and language to make friends in Hello Salaam, and explore how your identity is in your own hands—or er, paws—in Cat Days.

This dance-documentary follows 11-year-old Janero as he pursues competitive twirling and faces down both physical challenges and stereotypes about what most consider a girls’ sport.
