Chungungo: A mentor's tale


An endangered South American marine otter and her two pups lead the viewer into a poetic exploration of the gray area between comfort and action. From presenting a caring mother to a playful sibling bond to the kelp forests that nourish the family's entire ecosystem, this film aims to build empathy for animals as complex beings with far more depth than we give them credit for.
