Winners of the Institute for Family One Line Family Film Challenge
GRAND PRIZE WINNER ($500 cash prize)
4 generations, Director: Jade Jenise Dixon
Submitting to the One Line Family Challenge contest via Audpop, for the Institute for Family was, in some ways, part of a healing process. I named the submission 4 generations because, although one generation is absent, she was still present in spirit. In the video are my mom, my sister, myself and my sister’s granddaughter. A family tragedy took my sister’s daughter away. But our “village” has been there to pick up the pieces and help raise the children she left behind. In the video is one of the 3 children our family is raising. Her smile helps to lift all of our spirits. She may never truly remember her parents, but we will do our best to afford her a life filled with love, joy and hope.
