About the film
A humorous and touching road tale, the CareForce One Travelogues features the artist Marisa Morán Jahn, her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia as they travel from their homes in NYC to Miami in a fifty-year old station wagon, the CareForce One. Meeting up with nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, and allies along the way, this series explores how care intersects with some of today's most pressing issues — immigration, the legacies of slavery, racial discrimination, and more. The series is part of the CareForce, a public art project that amplifies the voices of America's fastest growing workforce, caregivers. Run time: 30 mins
Directed by Marc Shavitz
Produced by Studio REV- and Oscar and Emmy-winning filmmaker Yael Melamede (SALTY Features)
