Tre Maison Dasan is an intimate documentary film about three boys growing up, each with a parent in prison. Directly told through the child’s perspective, the film is an exploration of relationships and separation, masculinity, and coming of age in America when a parent is behind bars. Tre, Maison and Dasan are three very different boys. Tre is a tough 13 year old who hides his emotions behind a mask of tough talk and hard edges. Maison is a bright eyed 11 year old with an encyclopedic mind and deep love for those around him. Dasan is a sensitive 6 year old with an incredible capacity for empathy and curiosity. Their parents are not incarcerated for the low-level offenses that have become infamous in conversations around mass-incarceration, but their histories and relationships beg many questions about Justice and the lasting and rippling effects of a system at large.
Tre Maison Dasan premiered April 8th, 2018. The film multiple festival awards including Best Feature Documentary and Grand Prize at the Rhode Island International Film Festival as well as Best Documentary at Raindance. It also played The Montclair Film Festival, The SF Film Festival, Heartland Film Festival, and DOC NYC.
