RAISING GLOBAL CITIZENS, 80min., Canada, Adventure Documentary
Directed by Joel Primus
A couple with two young children decide to embark on a year long journey across the world, travelling through Argentina, Colombia, The Yukon, Vietnam and Lebanon, in hopes of learning how parenting and world travel combine, and what it means to be a citizen of the world.

Director Statement
Travel documentary is a popular and growing genre in film, yet often doesn’t delve into wider issues, like the effect of globalism and international tourism on the recipient nation. With this film, I was happy to find the opportunity to explore these concepts, while also trying to answer other relevant questions: can recreational travel be a political act (for better or worse)? Does experiencing different cultures as a child leave a lasting mark on your psyche growing up? As a parent, does having young children mean the end to your days of exploring the world?

In documenting the Primus family’s journey, I hoped to at the very least bring the viewer consider these questions, while maintaining the excitement the travel film genre provides in allowing one to vicariously experience global adventure.”
