Denali Tiller’s TRE MAISON DASAN is an urgent story that explores parental incarceration through the eyes of three boys. Following their interweaving trajectories through a childhood marked by the criminal justice system, and told directly through their perspectives, the film grapples with the legacy of incarceration on growing up and the struggle to define what it means to become a man in America. Hilarious, heartbreaking, uplifting, and ending with tremendous hope, Tre, Maison and Dasan’s lives are stories far too often experienced, but rarely told, filled with struggle, loss, empathy, resilience, and, ultimately, unconditional love.
This screening is co-presented by Ironbound Hard Cider.
