Lobster fra Diavolo

Tied to the System

DocumentaryDrama • United States • 19:20 Minutes

A poetic protest against police brutality. Last year I began my thesis project to do my part in heightening awareness of police brutality. With that I’ve been waiting for the right to release it which is foolishness, the time is now. Please pass it along.

Zoo (Volkerschau)

Drama • United States • 11:01 Minutes

Zoo (Volkerschau) is about two girls, one African, one German, preparing to see a live show featuring an exotic creature at the World’s Fair in 1958. Same expectations, drastically different outcomes. One thing for sure; we don’t know racism until it’s taught to us.
