Acasă, My Home is the first Romanian documentary selected in the official competition at the Sundance Festival and the winner of the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Cinematography. The film has been selected by over 60 festivals worldwide, winning 10 awards and shortlisted for The European Film Awards Documentary section.
As UiPath Foundation, we aim to amplify the powerful message of the documentary and create a forum for dialogue exploring the intersection of education and belonging. We want to foster further conversation on what are the long-term systemic changes needed to support underprivileged children and their families worldwide, so they can reach their full potential and thrive together with their communities, through equal access to quality education and through the development of 21st-century skills.
In these challenging times where the definition of home has drastically changed as many of us are quarantined to our abode and where educational systems around the world are facing more and more challenges, Acasă, My Home, gives us food for thought on what constitutes home for each one of us, inviting us to challenge the very meaning of it.
