Last year, Beavin Lawrence, the star of our award-winning short film THE SAXOPHONIST, and I had started planning a video montage of the joy and pain of African-Americans to the tune of his track “Black Rage”. It was originally planned for screening at his live shows. However, we believe that in light of what’s happening on the streets and around the world, there was no better time to release it than now. Some of these images will be difficult to digest. But we hope you can see why black lives matter.
