MFA documentary short film screening

I went to see my friend Theo's winter quarter project film tonight. He's in his first year of Stanford's MFA Program in Documentary Film and Video.

The screening was actually of four films; all told such beautiful stories. I'm just so very impressed at what talents people have. Theo's film (along with his project partner, Jason Sussberg) focused on the effect that incarceration has on families. The other films' topics were a family with two sons living with Lesch-Nyhan syndrome; two sex offenders attempting to live within society; and a man in Stockton, CA who believes that he found the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe on a rock.
