Film Fundraising Campaign to begin!
In coming weeks I will be launching a film campaign fundraiser for a short film titled “With One Eye Open. The film With One Eye Open, tells the fictional story of a young boy caught in the vicious circle of urban violence. Through his eyes, we see and feel the desperation that drives him to emulate behaviors learned on the streets that inevitably will control the course of his life. Most inner-city youths, like children everywhere, are not born as violent criminals. But many are infected by the plague of urban violence at an early age. Violent behaviors are learned, and are largely formed by watching and sometimes unconsciously copying the aggressive behaviors of those around them. These brutal actions are supported and even encouraged by social pressures, and it eventually becomes natural to reach for a gun.
This devastating cycle needs to be confronted and interrupted. There are many amazing groups working to do this right now, and I want to help. Using the powerful medium of film, groups and organizations will be able to use this movie as a tool to grab people’s attention and open their eyes to struggles facing our youth today.
More details coming soon!
