Donta Storey is a black, non-binary, prolific, and powerful voice and emerging actor, writer, producer, and director from Compton, California. In 2020 they released their writer/directorial debut film 'LiME', which is loosely based on their struggles while growing up black and "different".
LiME was the recipient of Honorable Mention at the San Francisco Black Film Festival in 2019 and screened in cities like Chicago, Il, San Diego, Ca, Denton, Tx, New Orleans, La, and Washington, DC before ending its successful festival run at the Los Angeles Ca OUTFEST Fusion Film Festival in March 2020. Their film has been reviewed and referenced everywhere from Film Threat, AIPT Comics, Queerty, and Willamette Week.
Their second film, Dooley Does Murder!, which can be described as a dark comedy with horror elements, goes into production in July 2020. As a nonbinary black queer human, Donta wants to tell stories that start conversations that add to the narrative that we all matter. Through storytelling, they believe they can change the world.
