The short animated film, I, Destini tells the story of having an incarcerated brother from Destini Riley’s perspective (at the time she was 14). The film is a collaboration between her and filmmaker Nicholas Pilarski. Frame animations are the products of a series of creative workshops between Nicholas Pilarksi and the Rileys.
