UNFINISHED WORK

Unfinished Work follows the Chavez family—Tiger, Yadira and Eric—through three years of peaks and valleys as they put the pieces back together after losing their 2-year-old son and brother, Romeo.

 

Beginning nearly a decade after the brutal accident that took the young boy’s life, this feature documentary explores the grieving process, the redefining of family roles in the wake of death, and the pull between Mexican and American, Catholic and secular grieving. Coming soon.

OUR OWN DEVICES

Teenagers, parents and teachers reflect on technology and socialization in this short documentary from directors Josh Kasselman and Stephanie Lucas.

Their teachers and parents, meanwhile, offer a variety of insights as to what 'constant connectivity' does to the teenage brain.
