OJO: Eye Opening Visit Back Home
Series Proof of Concept & Short Film 2019.
A former white nationalist visits his dying mother after years of abandoning his family's beliefs and being branded as a traitor. We go back and forth between present and past-- recalling the day it all went wrong.
This film is inspired by the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia in the summer of 2017 where the group Unite the Right assembled, and Protester and Activist Heather Heyer died in a Car Attack.
We do not condone any images or promote hateful speech or rhetoric dramatized in this film.
The film is a way to start the conversation of race relations in present day America.
