The new cinema project of Monda Raquel Webb is the short film Red Clay Dirt, a story on personal experience.
Monda Raquel Webb ha already been acclaimed as as a writer of note, and after her first successful short film – ZOO Volkershau – she is back with another powerful anecdote and potential hit.
The story despite it dark connotations is a celebration of life. As her subtitle claims – DNA is Irrefutable, Legacy is Imminent. An inspiration and even a modus operandi for those whose personal situation might appear to be insoluble.
Today the 12 June 2016 is the first day of her crowdfunding campaign on a site I personally haven’t heard of called Network for Good. The budget is ambitious and therefor a great challenge for her, the entire crew, cast and helpers that this film will feature.
Please seriously consider donating !!!
This will be a brilliantly executed project since Monda has recruited a team with a wealth of experience, commitment and talent from all over the USA and even from Europe.
The story tell of Rosa, an insecure young girl living and working in the fashionable corporate world in New York City who when visiting Georgia to attend her great Grandmother’s funeral discovers truth about her family heritage. The scenes of the movie are by and large based on true events.
Tripping over a tree root in the town of Dawson, Georgia acts as the perfect symbol to find Rosa’s ancestry as she fall unconscious and goes back in time to 1939 to a difficult period in her family past: when her Uncle George is forced to flee after killing a white man who was raping his wife.
The KKK which still somehow is allowed to exist today and which stands in support of Donald Trump’s scary jingoist and racist policies for US presidential election later this year in this tale do not achieve their goal.
The outcome for Rosa is fueled with a pride and identity which can come from realizing where we come from. Our own personal stories are the ones that count and can help others overcome personal struggle, depression and from succumbing to defeat.
As Monda herself says – if we lose our stories, then we cease to exist. ‘Kalatu’ in Kalatu blogging platform i an aborigine word which means ‘tell your story” – how apt is that?
So I urge you all to a call to action! Please donate today to RED CLAY DIRT or as soon as possible to the funding of this exciting project.
