A Year of Moving Pictures: February | Long Island, New York Family Films

This month's film is dedicated to my daughter, Lila. She is at the age where she is asserting her independence and pushing limits. We butt heads a lot. I wanted to make something that she could look back on and see just how much she is loved, despite it all. She may not know it, but my heart has been hers since the day she was born. 

I decided to read a poem that I first heard when Lila was just a few months old: "B" by Sarah Kay. If you haven't seen Sarah perform it, head on over to Youtube right now and check her out (amazing). 75% of the footage you see here was filmed last month, 25% is from the archives. 

So, here it is: "If I Should Have a Daughter".
