"Paradise Without People," the TIME feature documentary companion to Pulitzer Center-supported project "Finding Home," will screen at the Heartland International Film Festival on October 12 and 13, 2019.

TIME Studios produced "Paradise Without People" following the success of "Finding Home." The film focuses on two Syrian women, Taimaa and Nour, who give birth in a Greek hospital. The documentary depicts the journey of the two women and their families as they navigate an "inflexible European resettlement program that rarely takes their needs into account." The project "Finding Home" has been honored by the Edward R. Murrow Awards, the World Press Photo contests, and Pictures of the Year International.

The October 12 screening will be held at AMC Castleton Square 14, and the October 13 screening will be held at AMC Traders Point 12. Both venues are located in Indianapolis, Indiana. A panel discussion with director Francesca Trianni titled, "From TIME Cover Story to Feature Film" will follow the October 12 screening.
