STAY THEN GO is informed by my experiences with my son. I am not a documentary filmmaker or an educator, but an artist. And so, my report back from this remarkable experience is a creative one, an interpretive endeavor. Rather than telling my story, I created a kind-of mirror image with this character, this mother, who could reflect my deepest hopes and fears.
