Coming Home


Coming Home, directed by Josh Mancuso, is a documentary film chronicling a man's 40-day pilgrimage to India to trace his late father's footsteps. This journey led to a movement of compassion and social justice among destitute children from the slums. 


In 2017, Josh assembled a team to compete in a film competition in Knoxville. The team wrote, shot, and edited a 7-minute film in 54 hours. "Triangle" won Best Plot Twist, Best Montage, and Josh received a Lead Actor Award.
