About this submission

When the Roof Leaks' is an intimate documentary delving into family trauma and reconciliation. From the driver's seat of sonship, I navigate the highs and lows of my mother, Araceli. The aroma of arroz con camarones triggers memories of her best days, contrasted with the haunting recollection of hallucinations, screams, and bat swings at age seven. Through poignant poetry, I strive to comprehend the complexity of my mother. This film serves as a beacon, shedding light on her journey, with the aspiration of fostering healing and repairing fractured relationships.
