ROCHESTER — Chief Paul Toussaint is pleased to announce that the Rochester Police Department’s Juvenile Division will be hosting a screening of the documentary “TRE MAISON DASAN” later this month.
Friday, Feb. 21 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Rochester Community Center, 150 Wakefield St.
The Rochester Police Department’s Juvenile Division will be co-hosting the documentary screening with the Public Health Network and NH Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative. The documentary explores the effects of incarceration and the lasting impact it has on children of incarcerated parents.
The documentary, “TRE MAISON DASAN”, explores the childhood of three boys, Tre, Maison and Dasan, whose lives are complicated by having a parent in the prison system. 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.
Following the screening, a panel discussion between former incarcerated NH parents and their now-adult children will be held.
Childcare will be provided for children that are school age and older by the Rochester Recreational Department and light snacks will be available for attendees.
