United States, 96 minutes

Nine-year-old Emmanuel started filming himself and his family with a home video camera in 1999, capturing a child’s perspective of life in D.C. Just 17 blocks from our nation’s Capital, daily life is fraught with poverty, violence and addiction. The film captures the steadfast bonds of family life over a 20-year odyssey. Collaboration with This American Life contributor Davy Rothbart.
