I highly recommend seeing films in actual movie theaters.
You know, while you still can...
The trailer for my first feature film. An ensemble about Black on Black violence that Premiered in Dramatic Competition at The Sundance Film Festival, internationally
at The Edinburgh Film Festival and several others, including New Directors/New Films.
It was also selected to screen at the National Black Journalist Conference
and the Institute of Contemporary Art.
Roger Ebert called it “remarkable,” and Amy Taubin named it "One of the Most Original American Indies of 1997.”
A scene from my second feature film, LIFT. Kerry Washington plays a booster (professional shoplifter) who uses materialism to mend her fractured mother,
played by Lonette McKee.
The feature premiered in Dramatic Competition at Sundance, won Best Feature
at the 2001 UrbanWorld Film Festival, was the recipient of the 1998 Sundance/NHK International Filmmakers Award, the first Maryland Filmmakers Fellowship and in 2002 was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards. It was the only film selected to screen in the Freestyle exhibit at the Santa Monica Museum of Art and was purchased
by the Showtime Network.
