I, Destini is an animated documentary that explores the poignant and imaginative illustrations of a youth grappling with the effects of having an incarcerated loved one.Each shot of the film, word written, and frame animated was born from a series of creative workshops between director Nicholas Pilarski and Destini Riley (14 years old). From this collaboration, an autobiographical film was created where Destini explores issues relating to race, class, media, and over policing in her community of Durham, North Carolina.
