This documentary by RI film director Denali Tiller follows three local boys, each with an incarcerated parent.
"Told directly through the eyes of the children themselves, "Tre Maison Dasan" is a moving portrait of three unforgettable young boys struggling to grow up with a parent in prison. They face the pressure of growing up in a society that often demonizes their parents, provides little support for their families, and assumes “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Society writes them off as criminals, but in their hearts their children still see them as mom and dad." (from PBS)
