Eye to Eye (United States) by Darius Charles Lewis
Eye to Eye is a documentary, taking place between 2020-2022. It focuses on an African American family persevering through COVID, generational trauma, the fear of vulnerability, and the striking effects of grief, told in a series of vignettes. The topics addressed range from police brutality to the importance of mental health, while remaining tightly focused on the human beings affected by the chaos of the pandemic.
The film is a tribute to who and what we lost in the last few years; but it's also a tribute to the blessings we have in front of us.
