This is the kind of film that I would like to see made.
Dominic: A Love Letter is a short film about a young African American man who must cope with the profound loss of love he experiences when his family discovers his sexuality. The film seeks to illuminate and deconstruct homophobia by exploring the cultural value systems, particularly in the African American community, that make such bigotry possible.
The film is in its early planning stages and the producers need to cover the production costs. They are asking for our help. If you are so moved, please help in any way you can. You can donate by visiting the Dominic: A Love Letter website.
In the meantime, listen as co-creator, co-writer, co-producer, and co-star Acacia Morgan; co-creator, co-writer, co-producer, and co-star Damone Williams; co-director Jerome Watson; and co-director Gary Leroi Gray (of The Cosby Show and Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom fame) discuss why they believe in this project--and why you should, too:
