Without Wax

documentary short






Before Roberto Lugo became a renowned potter, painter, educator, and activist, he was just another kid hustling in the streets of Philadelphia. When Roberto was still working his way through art school, his brother was imprisoned and put in solitary confinement. Now Roberto returns to the hood to pay his inspiration forward and do justice to his brother’s story.
