Easter weekend, 2009, marked a very exciting time for my young career as an indie film producer. In three days of shooting, we shot 14 pages of script for a short film called KNUCKLEHEAD. The film is about a young black man named Langston (played by Gbenga Akkinagbi, The Wire, The Savages, Law and Order, Cold case) struggling to survive the projects of Bed-Stuy Brooklyn with Autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, and an obsession of a cure for his developmental disorders.
This is an inspiring story of someone who will not accept “no” for an answer, regardless of the circumstances. A story of persistence without exception. A story about overcoming odds and creating your own reality, regardless how feasible the dream may actually be.
