Hoan Alone: Personal Stories from the Bridge / United States (Director: Aaron Johnson, Writer: Aaron Johnson, Producer: Aaron Johnson) - Milwaukee's Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge is the crown over Summerfest and has become one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. But it's also a popular site for suicides. This animated documentary explores the issues of the bridge and suicide through three intimate interviews.

Fearing disclosure and condemnation, she chooses to trust her thoughts to her diary. But nothing stays hidden for long" DAY FOUR

The Unforgivable Truth / United States (Filmmaker: Sharon de Lobo) - The Unforgivable Truth' is a quality film initially showcasing military servicemen having sacrificed life and limb to secure the rights and protections of surviving widows, children and others, but then quickly reveals that those survivors have become a victimized population of elderly and offspring suffering at the hands of guardianship and sophisticated financial exploitation schemes. The emotional accounts of isolated victims, their descendants and certain associates appear sincere and truthful. The accounts of the so-called trusted caregiver are no less than bewildering. Comprehensive coverage of the drawn out exploitation of the Kibbee family dynasty by the daughter and a team of professionals examining the facts surrounding the efforts of First Interstate Bank to frustrate Mercedes Kibbee's expressed wishes that her ranch and other assets be used for underprivileged children and that her daughter Sharon be present and involved in meetings discussing the formation of a foundation to carry out those wishes is compelling and infuriating, though, perhaps a little hard to follow for those unfamiliar with the subject-matter. DAY FOUR

Deceptive Diplomacy / Sweden (Producers: Axel Gordh Humlesjö, Ali Fegan, Director of Photography: Ola Christoffersson, Photography: Graham Walsh, Editing: Ola Christoffersson, Research: Sonia Rolley, Frederik Obermaier, Hannes Munzinger, Tobias Zick, Colum Lynch, Story advisor: Marcos Hellberg) - Deceptive Diplomacy is a 2018 investigating documentary that exposed the cover-up within the UN to hide crucial evidence about the murder of the UN experts Zaida Catala'n and Michael Sharp in the Democratic Republic of Congo. But it is also a gripping story about two people that wanted to change the world in one of the most dangerous places on earth. DAY FOUR
