PARK CITY — A company with humanitarian aspirations has partnered with Park City High School to host a film festival and raise awareness about a variety of social and economic issues in foreign countries.

The Paradigm Project, an enterprise working to help struggling communities in Africa and South America, has organized the inaugural “Paradigm Film Project” during the Sundance Film Festival.

The paradigm festival will feature films that tell stories of war and poverty in countries like Kenya and Peru. The screenings will take place on Jan. 25 at Park City High School. A private screening for Park City High School students will be held at 1:30 p.m. A second screening open to the public will be at 4 p.m. There is no cost to attend.
