Destiny's Road at the Denton Black Film Festival in TX
|Destiny's Road is a film about a teenage girl, whose only chance of making it out of poverty is through college, scrambles to recover stolen tuition money before reliant family members catch on to her secret.|
Destiny's Road screened at the Alamo Drafthouse Theater on the final day of the festival. We had the pleasure of being the opening film for the winner of the best feature documentary, Patrinell The Total Experience. The two films complimented each other well, both having similar themes of family, hope, and faith. The audience response to my film was positive and I received wonderful compliments during the Q&A. Also, seeing the film on the big screen was exhilarating.
I left the theater on a high, but my mood immediately shifted when I entered the theater restaurant and saw the CNN headline that Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash along with his daughter, Gigi, and 7 others. The air was thick with sorrow, it was felt all around the Alamo Drafthouse venue and as soon as I got off the plane in Los Angeles the next day. May they all rest in peace.
Our next screening will be at the Cinema Sisters International Film Festival in March, hosted by the Wilmington Female Filmmakers Collective, in my home state of North Carolina.
