Teenage suicide and the sense of loss it generates for families are topics never easy to discuss and even more difficult to capture on film. "Remembering Joy" is Charli's tribute to a surviving sister and the emotional exercises she utilizes to provide perspective and enable her to cope. Competing as a high school freshman against all senior directors, Charli's was the only entry in this year's SkillsUSA Digital Cinema statewide competition to receive a perfect score.
