Slave Cry

SlaveCry final

Screens before the feature film Clemency

A young Black actress navigates the film industry in Richmond, Virginia, a market known for period pieces and historical tours. A sardonic look at how she reconciles the degrading roles she is asked to play, with her modern understanding of what it means to be a Black woman in America. A film about identity, legacy, and representation.
