But What Does it Mean?

Even when we feel that we have a sense of a film’s meaning, there is often more to uncover. Watch this video to better understand the film and why we selected it for the festival.

Meet the Filmmaker

Below, the filmmaker shares why they made this film.

“Jamaal is a friend of mine. Through his story, I wanted to show how one can overcome tragedy and trauma through finding a passion. I also wanted to show, through the story of the birth of his daughter, how (unfortunately) history can repeat itself when it comes to family dysfunction.”
