LA Feedback Film Festival Testimonial – October 24 2018

I was pleasantly surprised, I was shocked, because for the first time I realized that people across the world watched my movie all together. That’s crazy! I loved the feedback, It’s nice that people picked up on such small details like the apple and the way we dressed up the devil. There were little Easter eggs spread across the film, it’s nice that people picked up on that! The whole conversation about The Monkees was a direct reference to the story of how the devil got ‘kicked out’ of heaven (in the Quran). The restaurant ‘Sidora’ is an anagram for ‘Dorsia’, the restaurant in American Psycho. I wanted to link the whole Yuppy culture to Mason so that’s where the anagram came from. Stuff like that made it more meaningful to me and I hope the audience agrees.

Director Biography – Andy Brewster (A PIACERE)

77783aca55 headshot

After gaining a foundation in the basics of storytelling through developing award-winning, viral stop-motion animations with LEGO, Andy turned his sights towards live action projects after falling in love with the stories of J.R.R. Tolkien and their on-screen adaptations. During high school he took a number of classes, pursued freelance work, and was involved with several narrative projects including Unbridled (2017), “Juliana” (2017), “To Die For” (2016), and his own award-winning short, “After Yesterday” (2017).

Andy currently attends Biola University near Los Angeles to major in Cinema and Media Arts (with a concentration in Production), minor in Music (with an emphasis on violin performance), and study great books through the Torrey Honors Institute.

Since arriving at Biola he has delved headfirst into further developing his creative arsenal beyond his normal coursework by interning on the university’s video team, joining dozens of other student projects, and organizing group activities and screenings. And, he is also producing and acting as 1st Assistant Director on the feature film Rubaru by Marco Zambrana that begins shooting in August, 2018.

D3dfd5f825 headshot

Raised in Atlanta, GA writer/director Shanrica Evans began telling stories at the age of six. Her great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother crafted the best parts of her as each of them carefully instilled wisdom, humor, and sometimes fear into the creative young girl. Shanrica focused her education at the University of Alabama on American Studies. She spent most of her time at the University of Alabama analyzing history and its devastation impacts on present-day issues and earned a BA in American Studies.
Shanrica’s first short film “Blackface” went on to place as a finalist for the Cine Golden Eagle award and play in festivals like the Lone Star Film Festival, Sidewalk Film Festival, Long Beach Indie Film Festival and many more.
She is currently pursuing her MFA at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

 

Director Statement

 

When I was in high school I watched two of my peers physically assault a classmate. My bold, fearless classmate tried to take on the two aggressive boys but they were too much for her to handle. Paralyzed by fear I did not help my classmate. I was too afraid that the boys would target their aggression at me if I interjected. The girl that they attacked was named Brittany. Prior to my junior year of high school, Brittany’s name was Brandon. When Brittany came to school at the beginning of junior year and announced that she was trans she was isolated, judged, ridiculed, and frequently experienced violence from our peers. Brittany dropped out of school halfway through our junior year.

When I returned home during my sophomore year of college I asked a mutual friend about Brittany. He told me Brittany had been killed by a guy that she was dating. It’s been five years since Brittany’s murder and I’m still trying to process her death and why she was killed.

This short film is about Brittany and all of the other people that are killed because of who they are. I want to use this short film to question how gender and sexual identities exist in the African-American community.
