2:00pm-4:00pm

THE STARFISH THROWERS
Director: Jesse Roesler
Country: USA | India
Year: 2014
Runtime: 83 minutes

Powerful, direct and heartrending, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world’s most fiercely compassionate individuals struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Continents apart, a sixth grader, a top chef and retired school teacher fight what seems an unwinnable war until they discover their impact may reach further than their action.
