Writer Statement

Welcome to the Inferno was inspired by a piece of advice I got that if you want an interesting story set your characters amongst the damned. So I created characters that were as damned as possible. Period dramas have always been the most interesting to me, but rarely are the perspectives of marginalized groups seen in this genre. How do the experiences of African-Americans fit within the gangster genre? How do the experiences of queer people fit? Welcome to the Inferno attempts to answer these questions. This screenplay is a story that blends the thrilling nature of the mobster genre with in-depth character analysis on race, gender, sexuality, and class. Ultimately we explore the complicated relationship between family, personal identity, and societal expectations. At every step of this script, a singular message is embodied: it is always better to be true to yourself even if you get burned in the process.
