The Peace Corps has become a household name, but where did it come from and what is its real purpose? Find out in this documentary. A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps tells the story of the organization from its inception in 1961 to the present day, where it struggles to remain relevant amid the sociopolitical change of the modern era. There are also other many other films available through CIFF’s Virtual Cinema, including House of Hummingbird and And The Birds Rained Down

Film Q&As

Thanks to CIFF, you can learn more about independent films from around the world as well as how they’re made.
