DC Shorts Film Festival

SEPTEMBER 7—17, 2017

Raise to Rise

Experience D.C. General from the inside as a brave mother raising her two-year-old maintains a secret iPhone diary of their time at a shelter notorious for its uninhabitable conditions and structural neglect. This intensely intimate film looks at how one’s own childhood can lead to parenting a child under equally harrowing circumstances – and how one mother puts a stop to this suffocating feedback loop.
