One screen with tons of support. No money, No marketing budget, just passion, word of mouth and social media.
There's a movement going on...
From the Ava Duvernay's, Matthew Cherry's, Corey Grant's, ND Brown's, Trey Haley's, Danielle Ross's, Russ Parr's, Lena Waithe's, Leila Djansi's, Dennis Dortch's, Inga Eiland's, Charles Murray's, Jackie Stone's, Numa Perrier's,...the list goes on and on.
A movement of black filmmakers who did it their way...ARE doing it their way.
It's amazing, it's inspiring, it's HUMBLING.
A story, a vision, a passion, a film can change the game. A person, a tear, a cry, a sparkle in the eye, a determination, can change the game. A film, a director, a writer, a script, a DP...can change the game.
A movement...can change the game.
A movement of filmmakers who are tired of the studios, tired of the run around, tired of the disappointments, tired of the stereotypes, tired of waiting on Hollywood...CAN CHANGE THE GAME.
