About this submission

Like many people during the pandemic, my family and I have endured all kinds of challenges including navigating intense emotional terrain individually and together as a bi-racial family. Working with my own children as actors in "Shipwreck", the film was an avenue for personal expression while paying homage to the collective loss in our world. The goal was to create something impactful with a minuscule crew of 2 people during the summer lockdown in Los Angeles.
