Lahore used to be a mecca of Pakistani culture, a thriving center of art, music and poetry. When the Islamic government took over, strict rules were imposed that made art a punishable sin. The Sachel Studio Jazz Ensemble help show a side of Pakistan rarely seen by Western audiences: a lively, colorful place, with cultural heart. When the group’s rendition of "Take Five" achieved viral status on YouTube, they are invited to play in New York City with jazz legend Wynton Marsalis.

Set against the backdrop of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, Nawara lives in poverty with her grandmother because she and her husband of five years cannot afford to move in together. Despite her misfortune, Nawara remains sweet and optimistic. She works as a maid for Usama and Shahina, a couple so impressively wealthy and connected to Hosni Mubarak they take their privileged existence inside a posh gated community for granted. They understand nothing of Nawara’s world and she can only observe theirs.

Rarely explored in film, Memories of the Wind tackles the Armenian genocide in a subtle, yet affecting way. Aram is a poet on the run in the winter of 1943. Suspected of being a communist sympathizer, he is forced to flee Istanbul during the latter half of World War II. He winds up in secluded expanse of forest on the Soviet-Georgian border where a boorish Turkish man named Mikhail and a beautiful young Russian woman named Meryem provide shelter.
