Please join us for an incredible film screening of Tre Maison Dasan, followed by a Q & A with experts on criminal justice and the impact that parental incarceration has on children. Mayor of Durham Steve Schewel will introduce the film. All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will benefit Our Children's Place.

Our Children’s Place of Coastal Horizons Center is an advocacy and education program committed to the children of incarcerated parents. We strive to be the leading North Carolina advocate and educational resource focused on these children and the need for a statewide response to ensure their well-being.

About the film:

Tre Maison Dasan is an intimate portrait of three boys growing up, each with a parent in prison. Directly told through the child’s perspective, the film is an exploration of relationships and separation, masculinity, and coming of age in America when a parent is behind bars.

Tre, Maison and Dasan are three very different boys. Tre is a tough 13 year old who hides his emotions behind a mask of tough talk and hard edges. Maison is a bright eyed 11 year old with an encyclopedic mind and deep love for those around him. Dasan is a sensitive 6 year old with an incredible capacity for empathy and curiosity.

The boys’ parents are not incarcerated for the low-level offenses that have become infamous in conversations around mass-incarceration, but their histories and relationships beg many questions about Justice and the lasting and rippling effects of a system at large.
