Journey Home (Trailer)

An injustice often makes for a good movie storyboard; unfortunate that the situation has to be so tragic in this case. Did you see ‘Fruitvale Station’ (the tragic story of Oscar Grant’s shooting)? This is going to be another incredibly painful why-dammit-whyyyy experience like that. Should be a powerful film to watch. Inspired by the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Screenshot 2014-12-03 02.22.00“Journey Home” is a non profit independent short film inspired by the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. This film captures the reality of life’s frailty and the resounding impact the loss of life has on those connected. This film is not a reenactment, or attempt to depict the events that led to the death of Trayvon Martin. Journey Home is about the potential of one’s life that can be lost in a moment because of the situations we encounter and the decisions we make every day. We want the viewers of this film to reflect on the low point of their teenage years when they rebelled against parents, acted out in school, hung out with the wrong crowd, or just had a poor focus on life. When they have recognized that point in time, then we will ask them to imagine if they had died at that very point? What would those who only had a superficial view of your life have said about you then? Would you have been called a loser, slacker, thug, dropout, slut, rebel, thief, drug addict, or just plain stupid? Our “Journey Home” is a series of intersections we face at every moment in life, and when two paths cross sometimes it ends in tragedy. This film we take viewers through a series of emotions from compassion, to anger, and from love to despair. Hopefully leaving them asking the simple question, how much of my potential would have been unknown to the world if I died at 17. We look forward to your support #me@17#JourneyHome
