HOME at the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival: HOME (USA, 2012; 1 hour, 52 min.) Directed by Jono Oliver. Seattle premiere
Eric Oliver, Production Designer / Associate Producer will be at the festival representing the film.
Home is the inspirational story of Jack Hall (Gbenga Akinnagbe) who has suffered from mental illness since the age of 19. He's had some rough times over the years, but after having gone through dozens of arrests and hospitalizations, he's brought himself to a point where he has a steady job, a stable place to live, and is ready to move on from the group home where he resides into an apartment of his own in order to reconnect with his estranged son. But what would be a simple goal for most of us is a very difficult for Jack, with the stakes seemingly no less than life or death. By whatever means necessary, Jack needs more than anything to find his home. Also starring Danny Hoch, Tawny Cypress, James McDaniel, KK Moggie, Joe Morton, Isiah Whitlock, and Victor Williams.
