Gabriel Valentine, 17, is a rising senior at Palmer High School. Since he was little, Gabriel has been drawn to film and video cameras and the impulse to help people tell their stories. At Palmer, Gabriel has been active in Terror TV, a school television program. In addition, he has produced short media pieces for Inside Out in Colorado Springs. For his YDA project, Gabriel wanted to investigate fatherhood through the eyes of those who’ve had strong fathers, and through his own eyes: since Gabriel was two, he’s been raised exclusively by one parent, his mother. When he turns the camera on her, the film becomes an intimate testament to parenthood in general as a mother and son come to deeper terms with their own special relationship in the absence of a father.
