The HIFF2018 closing night film was the world premiere of AARP Studios' first documentary feature, Care to Laugh. The doc is a very heartwarming, uplifting look at stand-up comedian Jesus Trejo's grind in the LA stand-up comedy scene while juggling his responsibilities taking care of his septuagenarian parents.
It's a wonderful, inspiring, and very funny documentary. The filmmakers followed Trejo for one year and in that time they captured some highs and lows of Trejo's career and responsibilities as a caregiver to his parents. However, they also captured his drive, resilience, and a candor that is really inspiring.
