Nine year old Emmanuel began filming himself and his family with a home video camera in 1999, capturing his Washington D.C. neighborhood through the eyes of an innocent child. Growing up just 17 blocks from the U.S. Capitol, however, proved more difficult than one might expect. Director Davy Rothbart began filming the members of the Sanford-Durant family after he met Emmanuel and his older brother in 1999 at a local basketball court and befriended them as they continued to document their daily life over two decades in a city plagued by poverty, addiction and gun violence.

Davy Rothbart is a journalist, best-selling author, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, creator of Found Magazine, and contributor to public radio’s This American Life. His latest documentary, Medora, aired on PBS and won a 2015 Emmy News & Documentary Award. He’s the founder of Washington To Washington, an annual hiking trip for city kids.
