News From Afar

Episode Synopsis

Soldier returns from war.

Behind the Story

Director - Shawna Baca

"I have always wanted to tell a story about a soldier. News From Afar had personal reverence with me as my father was in the Army and he died when I was seven months old. There are so many things I think of that I would have wanted to say to him and often think if he were alive, what would he say to me. More stories of the heart and human condition need to be told about Latino people and families."
