A writer father and a filmmaker daughter walk the fine line between adoration and disappointment, success and failure, race, family and art. Until he dies and in her grief, she discovers his poetry and prose transcend death, allowing her to hear his voice again and find a way back to her own self.

“FATHER-daughter relations, the politics of being an artist, and poetry of breath-taking power converge in Unfinished Sentences, Mariel Brown’s moving new work about her late father, the acclaimed poet, writer and newspaper columnist Wayne Brown.” 

Mariel Brown’s ‘Unfinished Sentences’ Is Ode to Family, Love and Loss
by Anna Maria de la Fuente, Variety

‘Grief is a strange beast. When “Unfinished Sentences” helmer Mariel Brown’s father died in 2009, she was afflicted with a psychosomatic hearing problem and plunged into a deep depression. A celebrated Caribbean writer-poet, her father Wayne Brown succumbed to lung cancer not long after he was diagnosed.’
