Missing Relations
Almost 30 years ago, the filmmaker's mother gave birth to twin daughters. For a few months, Welbon shared her childhood with her baby sisters until their father "kidnapped" them. Welbon never saw her sisters again. Through narrative recreations of time and place, the video explores childhood memories of love, loss and family.
