A solo film that is neither #BlackLivesMatter nor #BlueLivesMatter. It was made to portray and highlight the after effects of fatal police encounters for family members affected directly by those events. The question that goes along with the film short is, “as a society, what is being done to help recover or repair those family members of the deceased,” and “ why isn’t it being done?” In media, the nation sees the day of and/or maybe up to a week or so after the events, but for family members and close ones, it is something that lasts forever. The media does not show that and people do not know that either, or at least most do not recognize that and forget.
