"Paradise Without People," the TIME feature documentary companion to Pulitzer Center-supported project "Finding Home," will screen at the Woodstock Film Festival on October 4 and 5, 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 4 screening will be held at Upstate Films, and the October 5 screening will be held at Bearsville Theater. The venues are located in Rhinesville and Woodstock, respectively. Panel discussions with director Francesca Trianni will follow both screenings.
