Director Statement

I first got interested in film when I saw the movie Swingers. I thought, wow, that seems like me and my friends up on the screen. I didn't realize before that movie that making films about people that looked, talked and acted like you was an option-- as crazy as that may seem. Since then it's been my goal to tell my stories, universal stories, with people that look like me and the people around me.

Run is inspired by a true story about my best friend. He called me from his parents closet when he was 18 and said that he was on the run from a murderer. There was an execution list of several boys at his school and his name was next. At the time of the call, I didn't know it, but I later found out that he had schizophrenic/bi-polar disorder and this was all part of a delusion.

This story is special to me because it's about my best friend and he unfortunately took his life shortly after this incident. I always thought if I knew more about mental health at the time, if mental illness wasn't such a stigma in the black community maybe my friend could have been saved.

I hope this short sheds light on the issue of mental illness and saves some people from experiencing the grief that we did.
