Film Screening: Tre Maison Dasan
Meet the Filmmaker Denali Tiller and the Boys Tre, Maison, and Dasan
Thursday, June 13, 2019 ~ 6:30pm
Please join us for an exclusive screening of multi award-winning film, Tre Maison Dasan, as seen on PBS’ Independent Lens. Tre Maison Dasan is a film about three boys - Tre, Maison, and Dasan - who share the experience of having a parent in prison. Filmed over three years in Rhode Island, this intimate documentary takes on the kids’ own point of view, and through their eyes we can see the complex emotional and social landscape surrounding parental incarceration in a way never before shown. RISD filmmaker Denali Tiller and the boys will answer questions after the screening. This program has been made possible through major funding support from the RI Council for the Humanities, an independent state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Friends of the East Providence Public Library.
