Director Statement

My first independently produced short film takes a look at how black bodies are trapped in a repeated cycle of incarceration. A chess match if you say, where the police system uses their power to keep black individuals at a constant disadvantage. The grey suits, similar to confederate uniforms, reflect a past that is still seen in contemporary society. Whether it is a Black King surrounded by white pieces on the chess board, or a Black man being closed in by the police, we live in a world where people only see a difference between black and white.
