Run With It: Sneak peek
A new piece in the making… Run With It (working title)
Run With It is a feature-length animated documentary, currently in production. The film tells the story of De’Jaun, a young black man on the Dean’s list, guided by the memory of his uncle Troy Davis who mentored him from death row.Davis was accused of killing a white police office in one of the most controversial, racially charged cases to go before the courts. This is a story of role models, truth and false perceptions, told by a young man determined to succeed, in a world that seems weighted against him.
• Support for the film (to date) provided by The Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts grant, University of California, Santa Cruz, and earlier funding by Creative Work Fund, which allowed us to film the first interviews with Martina Correia, as well as interviews for our previous film, Last Day of Freedom
