  • Forward: Anger Into Action, Director, Producer, Sound Mixer. Madison, Wisconsin is a vibrant city; but it’s also a city of many contradictions. While many people believe it to be a post-racial city of opportunity for everyone; the fact is that black citizens in Madison fair worse than black citizens anywhere else in the country. This interactive documentary project follows a group of grass roots action leaders, a convict reentering society, and a young African-American child attending an almost all white school and exposes the reality of life for these individuals. Shot on HDSLRs and a Canon C300, this documentary will be finished in Summer 2016.
