Kate Glynn hands a bill to Josie LaMarche to buy a ticket to the screening of “Fig Tree” at the Moab International Film Festival on Sunday, March 3, with Alice Urbiel (right) and Andie Mitchell (far right).

Denise Felaar, managing director of the film festival, stands to the left of Glynn. Written and Directed by Aalam-Warge Davidian, “Fig Tree” tells the story of 16-year-old Jewish Mina, who is trying to navigate between a surreal routine dictated by the civil war in Ethiopia and her last days of youth with her Christian boyfriend Eli.
