ABOUT THIS LIVESTREAM: Ideologies & The Promise includes close to 15 minutes of original music composed by NYU Steinhardt Graduate Sanjay Garcia Pamaar. The score has won the distinction of Best Score for a Short Film by the Toronto Film Awards, announced just days before the airing of Livestream III in which Pamaar was joined by the psychologist, and fellow musician, Daniela E Schreier, PsyD ABPP, who led a discussion on the film's complex themes. Together, using examples replayed from the film, they explored how the film had to be constructed while isolated in the epicenter of a global pandemic, as well as how the music was created to portray the feelings surroundings the film's themes.

An examination of theology and ideologies between two Hispanic immigrant women, one Cuban and one Mexican; and a philosophical journey between two cousins reeling from the loss of a family member. Both parts converge with a poignant, family-affirming climax. Adapted from an essay and a short story written by a son and his mother, respectively.
