I was asked recently what my films are about and the short answer is the Human Experience. Of course they said, “Isn’t that what all films are about?”
Yes, in short they are, however I want to create films that make people walk away thinking that they can do the impossible, too. Every one of my films speak to those people who view their life as impossible. Overcoming adversity is a human condition, one that always feels impossible, until one day there is a catalyst of change.
It truly takes just one small thing to change in a person’s life to make a profound impact.
Trash of Angels takes place in South Carolina in the 1950’s during the Jim Crow Laws. It flashes back to a scene where Avery Booth is beaten by his step-father and until he is rescued by a negro garbage man, Barnaby Holmes. Avery is taken under Barnaby’s wing and shown a completely new perspective in his town of Crescent Glenn. It’s a story of our ever-changing perspectives and how easily we are swayed by those around us.
I believe in people and their ability to grow. I want to share that with my audiences.
