On Saturday, October 9, 7pm come on out for an evening of moving short films presented by local author and poet, Greg Wright.
Nate Nzanga’s “Enough.” This short film is a dystopian examination of a young Shoreline, Washington hip hop musician’s experience as a Black man in world that doesn’t fully absorb the implications of Critical Race Theory… or the meaning of radical love. I served as a producer on the film, which was 10 years in the making, having designed the technology which captured video of a young Nate Nzanga as he navigated his way through adolescence. The short film has won numerous awards, including Vimeo’s “Best of the Month” Staff Pick.
Footage from “Let Me Have My Son.” Award-winning writer/director/star Cris Krusen has crafted a fictional story from his own experience as father of a young man suffering from debilitating schizophrenia. In this feature-length film, a dying man gets word that his son is about to be released from treatment; but upon arriving at the facility, he finds that his son has gone missing… and that he, himself, is being treated as a patient. Filmed on location in Mexico and Minnesota, principal photography wraps this month. Wright consulted on the script and serves as Associate Producer. He is also publishing an updated edition of the book which inspired the movie.
LOCATION: TwispWorks Pavilion, outdoors. It will be cold, bring a comfy chair and blankets to stay cozy. FREE.
