By Water America ReFramed
BY WATER follows an unlikely hero's journey into his memories, which transform into a vehicle for reconciliation and healing. Based on a true story, the film was written and inspired by Iyabo Kwayana’s experience with her brother. Upon receiving an unexpected voicemail from him after his disappearance, Kwayana heeded her brother’s message and created this film as a way to “complete” his story.
