I found out about this website from the guest speaker, Malcolm D. Lee, writer/director of The Best Man and Best Man Holiday on WBLS "Open Line" Sunday morning talk show. I was so excited to learn about "cast and crew of color.org" and fortunately was linked to "dvrepublic.org"! I'm so excited to really commit myself to what I love and do best, write and produce stories of content! Thank you for being the spark that have reignited the flame inside of me!
This crime drama starts out in what looks like South Central L.A and ends up in rural Arkansas. Directed by Carl Franklin from a script by Billy Bob Thornton, and starring Thornton, Bill Paxton, Cynda Williams, and Michael Beach, it begins with bloody bodies on the floor and ends with bloody bodies on the ground. Ostensibly a genre picture, this film becomes a profound mediation on race relations in the American heartland.
