Director Biography - Ssuuna Kakumba McKitty

I am a Freshman at the Illustrious Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. I am an up-and - coming film producer/screenwriter/actor. I am passionate about telling stories that activate our human senses and encourage positive change. I studied comedy at Second City in Chicago and was a student at the Chicago Acting School. I am also pursuing TV& Film certifications from NYU. I am super excited as I prepare to release my first short film which is a creative, thought - provoking approach to highlighting mental health from the perspective of a young black man in America. However, my film will touch the hearts of all through the lens of human experience. Mental health challenges impact all of us as our lives are connected regardless of race, gender, sexuality, economics, or politics
